I do have a bread machine but this recipe did not work in it. With bread machines you add all the ingredients at the same time. When making handmade bread, you begin with the wet ingredients and add the dry slowly as needed. I made two loaves. The first one, I added everything at once (thinking it would work in my machine). But once I realized there was too much volume for the container, I took it out to knead it, and there was way too much flour so I had to add more liquid, which is not the way you make bread. It was a hard lump and difficult to knead. I made a second loaf because I had lots of starter, so I did it the proper way and it was a lovely dough by only using about 2 cups of flour. I let it raise til doubled, punched down and let it rest for 15 minutes before making into a loaf with slices across the top. Let it double again and baked at 400 for 35 minutes and brush with butter upon cooling. both loaves turned out great!
