This was my first time making bread without my breadmaker! I misplaced the kneading paddle and decided to make bread from scratch. It turned out wonderful! I will say that it was difficult to stir and quite sticky; I had a real mess in the kitchen to clean up afterwards. I didn't read the recipe close enough to notice that I was making THREE loaves of bread and was shocked at the amount of flour. But, I put two balls of dough in the freezer and look forward to eating those in the near future. I'll cut it down to one loaf next time, though. Thanks!
