This is a small loaf but cooks well in the breadmaker despite that. I was a bit worried when I looked at the amounts of water and flour but this recipe works well and makes a very nice bread. Pesto comes through well. Editor's note: This recipes has been revised for the larger loaf since this review.

Nice flavor! I like the fact that it has some whole wheat flour in it but not enough for my family to know ;-).
