Needed to use up some ricotta and came across this recipe. It was a dense bread, but we enjoyed it. I did add the extra 3 tbs of flour - because I was leaving and wasn't sure if it was going to be sticky or not. Maybe that wasn't the best decision as far as it being heavy. I have a small bread machine, so I'm always on the lookout for 1lb recipes.
I mixed the recipe in the bread machine and baked it in a 8-1/2 X 4-1/2 pan. I did have to add about 1/3 cup additional flour. I baked the loaf for 35 minutes at 350; it could have used an additional 5 minutes or so. Wonderful flavor, I'll make it again.
YUMMMM! This is a very nice bread and I love to make cinnamon french toast with it, bread pudding and/or toast it. I set my crust to medium as I always do and it was lovely! Thank you for a keeper! Am going back to live in the US and searching out bread maker recipes as I have a barely used one awaiting me that I left behind. Great recipe!
