I thought this bread was great. I was looking for a bread to make on a snowy afternoon and this looked fine. I do not have a bread maker, but mixed one batch in my kitchenaid. The method I used: combine the flour, sugar, yeast and salt in the mixer. Then combine the oil and warm water and add slowly while mixer is running. After the dough comes together (I needed to add an additional 1/2 cup of flour), let the dough hook knead it for 7 minutes. I turned it out onto a board then but the texture was lovely and did not need more kneading. Preheated your oven to 200 then turn it off. Let the dough rise in an oiled bowl covered with plastic wrap in the oven for 40 minutes. The dough was a little sticky to handle but using the parchment paper eliminated most of the handling. I let it rise for the additional 40 minutes but in the future would let it rise longer - it wasn't that tall when done - but a lovely taste and texture. The crust was perfect. I will definitely make this again.
