      {big grins} I didn't cheat! I made the full recipe, and I am so glad I did. This is a very tasty bread, slightly sweet but not a sweet bread. Wonderful flavor, very sandwich friendly - sturdy enough to cut thinly, but tender enough to chew through easily. I gave it a third rise, just 20 minutes, because I wanted actual loaf shapes (for making sandwiches). So after #11, I cut the dough in half, rolled jelly roll style and patted into two 9"x5" loaf pans, covered and let rise for 20 minutes. Then I continued on to Step 12. They turned out amazing.

      I cut it in half like the other reviewers and made it in my bread machine. It is a truly delicious bread, that reminded me a little bit of a brioche.
