Just made this bread today and it is great! Soft inside and crusty outside...am eating a slice right now! Made EXACTLY according to the recipe including bake-time (which I thought was a little longer than other recipes but went with it and it is perfect) and used Red Star Platinium Superior Baking Yeast...this yeast has bread enhancers in it. This loaf does not have a strong yeast flavor which I never cared for in home made breads...and this bread tastes much better than store bought. Going to have another slice with my dinner! Thanks, TJfromFL for sharing!
Nice flavor, crumb and crust! I admit it! I mixed this on the dough cycle of my ABM. I have a Kitchenaid mixer, but the ABM is much more convenient. I made the recipe as written, EXCEPT I added 3/4 teaspoon salt, and made the dough into 21 small sandwich thins topped with toasted sesame seeds, instead of shaping it into a loaf. I baked the thins at 400F for 10 minutes. Tagged as a Preemie adoption, Spring PAC 2014.
That's wonderful! The steps are very clear and it was easy to follow the the procedure.<br/>I added about 1/2 teaspoon salt, as I'm used to salted bread.<br/>I used my knead machine and followed exactly the steps and speeds as described. This is an easy way to prepare bread and you have only just to wait for rising and baking time.<br/>I can really recommend this recipe and adapt it for the different sizes and shapes you like; you have only to adjust the cooking time!<br/>Thanks a lot for posting your recipe.
