Top Review by Marie Nixon

I made this for my husband to bring to a pot luck so unfortunately, I was not able to actually taste it. I made the dough in my bread maker. It took about 3 1/4c. of flour to get the dough to the correct consistency. Based on Vicki Kaye's review, I increased the 2nd rising time. I let the dough rise for about 45 minutes. It really is a show stopper coming out of the oven. I was disappointed, however, because as it cooled, the top of the bread deflated from being dome shaped to flat. I am sure it did not affect the flavor.
