Hi skyEyz_7, I have a couple of questions about your yummy recipe. When you make this, do you take the crust off your bread? Also, do you use whole milk or could you use 1%? And do you use juice from a real lemon or have you used the bottled type? Which do you find works better?


Hi Joanie,
I usually leave the crust on but you could take it off if you would like.
For the milk i use regular milk, and for the lemon i have used both i prefer using fresh lemon juice but have done it with the bottled lemon too and does fine too. I like to do this because i usually do it the night before that way, i have my morning coffee and can relax :lol: I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
