      First review 2/26/05I made this for MEAN CHEF's online bread making class. I made 1 loaf and 8 rolls. I went ahead and "shaped" the loaf before reading in the class transcript that you should flatten the dough and tightly roll it into a loaf; my loaf did not have a round top, but it’s just fine. The rolls look better. It all tastes great. I did not glaze with egg, and I had to put it all on hold in the middle of the second rising - I put in fridge and when I returned about an hour later, they had continued to rise and were ready for the oven ~ I just brought to room temp (about 15 mins) and baked ~ per MEAN CHEF's online instructions in the "classroom." Great class, great bread and GREAT teacher! Thanks MC for giving up the afternoon and to show us how to do it right! UPDATE! this is such a versatile recipe! I have made it again twice this weekend; once with equal parts whole wheat and white flour and again with 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds, 1/4 cup old fashioned (not quick cooking) oatmeal and 1/2 cup untoasted wheat germ. I decreased the flour to 4 cups and used equal parts whole wheat and white flour. I baked it in one big rustic free-form loaf. This is the BEST bread recipe! I will be using this again and again!

      first time I made this recipe, I set the loaves on the cooling racks, went to store to find nothing but crumbs left when I got back. Had to make 4 more loaves just to have enough bread for lunch sandwiches. thanks for the recipe post. A keeper!
