    I followed the recipe except when I baked it I didn’t put my oven quite as hot as the recipe . I did 400 for 15 minutes and then 350 for the remainder and it turned out beautiful. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for a great recipe.

    I made the sandwich bread two weeks ago. It was so easy and delicious. Today, I made the cinnamon bread. I made the braided loaves and again they were easy and delicious. My only problem was that tops were beginning to burn in 10 minutes. Even after tenting them, they got quite dark. Is this normal or what should I do differently? Thank you for the amazing recipe!

    I made this bread today. It is very fluffy. I'm not familiar with Hokkaido bread so I can't speak to that. It tastes ver much like brioche. It is very good.

    Excellent, I make all of my breads by hand as I do not have a mixer. This bread came together beautifully. I didn't have an egg so I subs[filtered]uted baking powder, oil, and h2o. The texture was wonderful.My husband said it was the best bread I have made. Thank you Martha.

    My final product seemed just like regular old white bread. It was a lot of a effort for a result that could have been achieved with store-bought bread. It was not fluffy like real Hokkaido bread. I wish there were more tips and tricks for people who are not familiar with making this type of bread. I will likely not try this recipe again.

      My results were quite opposite. It was very light, had a fine crumb and was very tasty. Please try it again. I followed the recipe to the letter after watching her make this on her tv show.
