This recipe is for us oldster with bad joints and a decent mixer. My Kitchenaid does all the kneading. Makes one loaf. Good luck

Nice flavor, crumb and crust! I admit it! I mixed this on the dough cycle of my ABM. I have a Kitchenaid mixer, but the ABM is much more convenient. I made the recipe as written, EXCEPT I added 3/4 teaspoon salt, and made the dough into 21 small sandwich thins topped with toasted sesame seeds, instead of shaping it into a loaf. I baked the thins at 400F for 10 minutes. Tagged as a Preemie adoption, Spring PAC 2014.
