      This bread is just wonderful! I used a Kitchenaid mixer as well for mixing the dough and what a wonderful dough it was - soft and fluffy. I made a single loaf (which rose into a huge loaf during the baking!) and topped with poppy seeds. Great taste and texture - thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for the Best of 2013 event, recommended by Cookgirl

      I used my KitchenAid mixer to prep the dough and replaced about 2 cups of the unbleached flour with freshly milled spring wheat. I love the simplicity of this recipe and the manner in which the bread is prepped for baking (cold oven). Served with a Spanish-themed main dish shrimp salad (recipe coming soon I hope!), fresh orange slices and glass of wine for a wonderful Father's Day early dinner. Bingo! Thank you for posting the recipe.
