      I tried this recipe, but found that I needed to add a lot more flour to make a dough that could be kneaded. Anna tells me that the recipe was copied correctly from her cookbook. With the addition of about 6 more cups of flour and 4 or 5 tablespoons butter, and leaving all other ingredients and amounts as listed, this makes delicious bread. I liked the pine nuts and thought using caraway with cinnamon was interesting. I will certainly make this again, with the changes noted. I wish I could give it more stars.
