Definitely a very good recipe. I followed the directions exactly except moving the loaves. They rose on the baking sheet, I just didn't see the point in moving them.
The one issue I had probably has more to do with my bread machine than with the recipe. I bought it at a garage sale, no manual. It's an old, 12 cup capacity Mr Coffee Breadmaker. I'm pretty sure that the dough cycle includes a second rising. Since I followed the recipe directions, I allowed the cycle to finish, meaning that the bread was "punched down" twice.
Bottom line is that my loaves turned out a bit more dense than what I would consider "perfect", but they are pretty darn close. This recipe will definitely be my go-to. It's simple enough and inexpensive enough (how nice to come across a recipe for which I have every ingredient on hand) that I can afford the time and money to "tweak" until I get the perfect loaf of my dreams. I'll update with success and failures, especially for owners of the Mr Coffee Breadmaker.
