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.

Thank you for a wonderful recipe! As you can see from the photo I posted, it makes an eye-popping presentation! You eat it like a savory wedge of a pie. Creamy and yeasty--incredible with a glass of wine, packing a slice in your husband's lunch the next day, warmed up for an afternoon snack--all of which I did with my pie. For anyone intimidated by the "from scratch" part--this is an easy way to get started on the rich and homey art of bread making. The directions work out just like she says--except I allowed much more than 10 minutes for the second rising--actually another hour. This made the folds and "top knot" much more interesting. YUM.
