Top Review by Curlee
I made the dough in the bread machine by first warming the water and butter in the microwave for a minute then I added the dry ingrediants and put the yeast on top. Even though I accidently put both tablespoons of butter in the dough it still came out good. I used 2 3/4 cups of flour and only 2 teaspoons of the sugar. Shaped the loaves and let them rise and then used an egg wash (beaten egg yolk with a smidge of water to loosen) then just sprinkled with sea salt. I also put a pan of water on the bottom rack to help with the crust. Not sure if it made a difference or not. A keeper for sure. Thanks.
