I was looking forward to make this bread as a Saturday project! I must have done something really wrong. I followed the directions and ended up with something like pancake batter in my processor. It never formed the dough. I'll skip to a traditional recipe using the old kneading method. I'm sure this recipe will work for others, it just didn't work for me.

Make the bread with 3 to 3 1/2 cups flour and it works out.

I had the same experience as did Pink Ribbon 09. I had to add about 1/2 cup more flour... it did turn out nice, but this recipe should be either revised or removed.
