Excellent method of making bread! I often use the overnight method myself........it's great when you are busy. My buns, excuse me, came out so well this morning - light and crisp, and my B and B guests LOVED them! Made for Flour Power in the Photos Forum, April 2008, excellent recipe and SO easy. Thanks Mandy. FT:-)
