    MarylandMomof3's Note:

    This is a recipe that came off a pkg of Fleischmann's Rapid-Rise yeast in the 90's. It's light and aromatic without being overpowered by seasoning. In my bread machine, I use regular yeast, put all liquids, then dry, then yeast and set it for a light 1.5lb loaf. It takes 3 hours to fully cook. Use dough setting

      I admit I was skeptical of the method for this recipe. Only one rising session? And over the boiling water? Well, guess what? It WORKS!!! This is a delicious loaf with a crusty exterior and soft interior. I used your ABM instructions in your note just through the "knead" cycle. My braiding technique could use some work, but since I plan on making this often, I will get lots of practice! :) Made for Fall 2012 PAC game.
