      I made half a recipe and, since I don't have a Kitchenaid mixer, stirred it by hand. I admit I was a bit skeptical of how it would turn out--but the bread is delicious, very flavorful, with a soft crumb and crisp crust. It takes some pretty heavy-duty stirring, though! Still, it is easier than hand-kneading, and the result is terrific. Thanks for posting!

      Ok I made this bread with awful results. It was ridiculously hard to vigorously stir as the directions stated. My bread hardly rose at all. It was tough and stuck to my romertopf bread pan. Help, what went wrong?

      Thanks for posting! It's always fun to see how far recipes travel!! This recipe appeared in the 50's in a cookbook of Favorite Recipes of Pennsylvania Home Ec Teachers. My Mom and I have made this numerous times in years past; it always turned out well. Thanks for reminding me, will have to try it again.
