I do not believe it is possible to produce a loaf of bread from this recipe as it is written. Having quite a bit of experience making bread and dough in a bread machine, I was skeptical of the amount of water called for, but I tried it first as the recipe states. I ended up having to add at least another half a cup of water. After a lot of watching and adding more water to get a dough ball to form in the machine, it rose okay and the end result was a decent crusty bread. I liked the simplicity of this recipe and wanted to give it a try, but I don't think it's one I would make again.
