Can you tell me if this is a 1, 1.5 or 2 lb. recipe? Usually I can tell when it's in cups, but I'm new to the oz. thing. :) I have a 2 lb. machine. Thanks in advance. Can't wait to try it.

Sure :-) It makes a 1 1/2 pound loaf. Rises very nicely. my bread maker is also a 2 pound machine but i like the 1 1/2 pound size better for making sandwich size slices.

Thank you! Made the bread tonight and it was perfect! Finally a bread the whole family can eat. My son can't have cows milk (hence why I make bread) and I wanted something lower in points plus! Delish!!!

Hi irhassenger. This is Deeny Just curious as to what you used for the dry milk powder - Did you substituted anything? You can leave it out but the crust won't be quite as tender but still good. Just curious cause you said you avoided cow's milk. Also did you use the Hi-Maize Corn Fiber From King Arthur Flour. I can't find it in the stores so i order it. That is the ingredient that reduces the calories and ups the fiber so the nutrition calculates to a lower points plus value. Glad it turned out great. Sincerely, Deeny

They actually make powdered goats milk :) He's allowed to have goat milk, but not cows. Was delicious without it though. I did order the king arthur flour because I knew that I would use it in other stuff. What a wonderful find! Working on adding it to the kids' pizza crust.
