“You can make terrific bread in six steps!! It is really easy to make. This bread has been a hit with our family for many years. I adapted it from a recipe on a package of Winn Easybake Yeast and Bread Improver. The recipe makes 2 680g (1 1/2 lb loaves). Use your imagination when baking the bread. Use smaller loaf tins to make different sizes of loaves. Make rolls, etc.”
