Just a quick post to thank Cindylou from FB for a great recipe to add to my homemade bread making quest! Less than two hours for some beautiful and amazing smelling fresh bread.

In making this bread the key to the perfect height and rise is getting the milk to the perfect temperature to add to the dry ingredients. The rise of the loafs for the 45 minutes was about double before they went into the oven. I’m so excited to show you all! Enjoy!
