    Presifted flour okay to use? Or does it still have to be sifted again?

    • Valentina's Corner 01/20/2020, 11:11 pm Link Reply

      I’d recommend sifting it again as the sifting does wonders. I hope you love the bread, Janice. Enjoy.

      Ngozi, in our post, we share the bread machine that we use. If you click on the link, it will take you to the image of it. Honestly, most bread machines are great now. I purchased an inexpensive one for my mom at Walmart and she’s had it for years.

    I’m looking forward to making this! Can I substitute honey or maple syrup for the Sugar? If so would I use instant yeast instead of active yeast?

    • Valentina's Corner 11/18/2019, 5:50 pm Link Reply

      I’ve not tried substituting for honey or maple syrup and cannot be sure how that would affect the recipe, sorry. If you experiment with it, I’d love to hear your feedback.
