This bread was a waste of good organic wheat flour! I would never make it again. The proportions of wet to dry ingredients seemed "off" but I went ahead with the directions anyway. It was so wet that it was more like a batter bread.
Dense, chewy and delicious! I used instant yeast (reduced the amount), canola oil, and sprinkled some oats on top before baking. I let it rise 30 minutes in the mixing bowl, and another 30 minutes in the loaf pans. I divided the dough into 6 balls, placing 3 balls in each loaf pan. When kneading the second time, for 5 minutes, I covered it in white flour and kneaded by hand. The outside of the bread was stiff after baking, so I brushed it with butter, and that helped it soften. This is very easy to make and definitely worth it. Thanks for the great recipe.
