I made this twice and both times, it fell. The first time I used the basic cycle; the second time I used the French bread cycle in my Breadman machine. It tasted good anyway. I would like to know what I am doing wrong or is there a typo in the recipe for 1.5 pound loaf.

  1. Place all the ingredients in the pan according to the order in the manufacturer's instructions.
  2. Set crust on dark and program for the Basic or French Bread cycle; press Start.
  3. When the baking cycle ends, immediately remove the bread from the pan and place it on a rack.
  4. Let cool to room temperature before slicing.
