I just made a half batch and cooked half of that. I made it in my mixer with the dough hook and it mixed perfectly. The outside was hard and crusty and the inside was soft. The texture was a little more dense than I had hoped....however it was good. Dough holds well to the next day. The picture I put up shows oven baked on the left and skillet cooked on the right.

This will replace the banock recipe I was formerly using. This produces a nice textured bread that is easy to prepare. The outside is firm and crispy, while the inside is nice and soft. I cooked half the recipe in a cast iron skillet on the stove, and the other half in the oven. Both methods work well, but I think I prefer the oven version. Thanks so much.

Easy to make! I'm making it for some friends who just had a baby so I won't get a chance to try it - hopefully it's not too stiff, but from the other review it sounds as if it's nice and soft on the inside.
