      I decided to do this recipe in my bread machine. I added all of the ingredients for the bread in the order recommended by the manufacturer. I used 2 3/4 cups all purpose flour. I used the dough setting. I needed to add just a little bit water because it seemed dry in the machine. The dough turned out perfect. I got a nice bread. I chose not to use poppy seeds. It was great fresh with butter, but it's also great toasted with butter. Thanks AmyZoe :) Made for New Kids on the block tag game
