    Great Bread! Easy and Delicious. I lost my printed copy of this recipe and had not saved it with this site. I am so glad I found it again. Making it today and having it with Beef Barley Soup............can not wait. Plus it keeps me busy during these strange times. Thank you

    This was excellent and easy. I let my bread machine make the dough for this, by doing step 1 in the bowl of my bread machine and when it was foamy adding the 4 cups flour and the salt. Then I ran it on the dough setting and resumed these instructions at step 5. The brushing the top with cool water is new to me but it must have worked because it made a nice crusty bread. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Lubie.
