This is a very good bread. I rate the recipe itself a 3 star because I had a lot of trouble with it. As posted, my ABM could barely knead the bread it was so gooey, I had to add a whole cup more of flour to make this bread and even then it was hard to handle. However, it is a 5 star recipe for the finished product. It tastes amazing and it does smell incredible, especially after you slice it. I used my ABM on dough cycle then lightly kneaded the dough by hand (kneaded in about 3 T of flour) and put in a loaf pan coated with olive oil and sprayed the top with olive oil and allowed to rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Then I cooked it in a 400F oven for about 22 minutes. I will be making this again and again. Thanks for posting! Made for My 3 Chef's Event November 2009.
