I scaled this recipe to 12 servings (1 loaf), but I see that the previous reviewer scaled in half for one loaf. I baked this in a 9x5 pan, and even after 1-1/2 hours on the final rise, it never did rise to 1" above the loaf pan. Unfortunately, when I was putting the pan into the oven, it slipped out of my hand onto the oven rack and deflated, so I didn't take a picture. However, I'm going to try this again, making half a recipe, and using one 9x5 pan. If you're scaling to one loaf, you may want to consider an 8x4 loaf pan which should give you more height. On the positive side, the dough really was easy to work with, and it tasted good, so I'll do an update soon on my next effort.
Very nice bread. Hubs loved it even more than the Bagel Bread he has been raving about for 6 months . . .I guess he's found a new favorite! I did have to add about 1/2 cup more flour, and instead of making this into 2 loaves like others did, I made it into 4. It made for small loaves, but it's just the 2 of us so that works even better. I used the bread machine but took it out after the dough cycle and baked on 350 for 40 minutes. Delicious! Thanks for the recipe!
I halved this recipe and made one sandwich size loaf. I used white whole wheat for 1 cup of the flour and used melted butter instead of vegetable oil. I did have to add almost a full cup more flour to achieve the correct dough consistency, but it baked up nice and moist with a soft, but sturdy crumb. I was happy that there is only the merest hint of sweetness. Thank you, this will go in the recipe box.
