I'd love to give this bread five stars, but I've tried it three times and each time it comes out with a cratered top. I'm sure that is due to my lack of breadmaking experience; this recipe may not be written with the novice in mind. Even though the loaves looked like a half-pipe, we ate them, and I liked the results enough to keep trying. The texture and flavor were wonderful, and the bread sliced easily. I will try the recipe a fourth time, decreasing the amount of buttermilk from 1 C by 2 T (I'm proofing the yeast in 1/2 C of water, so I decreased the buttermilk to begin with). If this fixes the problem, I'll re-submit my review with detailed instructions, since I'm not the only person who has had trouble with the recipe as written.
