This was a great flavored bread. I used 1 1/4 cup warm water with 1/3 cup of powdered milk, it's easier than scalding. Also I had to slit the top of bread in loaf pan on the second rising. I used close to 4 cups of flour so it was huge. My temperature was 405 and I had to pull it at 30 minutes because the top was very dark. This was my first yeast loaf bread as I typically make rolls. But I will try it again to see if I can better perfect my method, thanks for posting.
