This had decent taste but it made a very small, misshapen loaf. I had to add some water when my machine beeped and I even added an extra 1/2 teaspoon of yeast after reading the reviews and the loaf was still dense and tiny. I may try this again and double the recipe as stated but as it is written it is obviously incorrect.
There wasn't anything exceptional about this loaf... I too doubled the recipe and added some extra sage but there wasn't much flavor. It was also pretty dense.
After reading the reviews, I doubled the recipe. I used 3 cups plain flour and 1 cup bran, as I didn't have any wholewheat. I was generous with the sage and yeast, and substituted half the milk with water. The loaf collapsed slightly, and is quite dense but nice crisp crust. The sage was extremely subtle. It toasts well. Nice loaf.
