I cut this in half to make one loaf. I proofed the yeast in my Kitchen Aid mixer bowl with the sugar and warm water for ten minutes. After the ten minutes, I added the melted butter, then the dry ingredients and seasoning. I needed to add another 1/4 cup of flour to get it to completely form into a ball and jump on the hook. I kneaded it with the bread hook for five minutes, then set it to rise in a greased, covered bowl for a couple of hours on a hot oven. I had a heck of a time getting it to rise. After it doubled, I formed it into a loaf and set it to rise again in the bread pan on the warm oven. It took another couple hours to rise. It baked up well, it just kind of seemed like a balloon that lost it's air. The loaf came out with crusty sides and the texture inside was similar to a beer bread. I did add a half tsp. of garlic powder when I added the spices, I made no other changes. Next time, I'll read through the whole recipe before I try it, a novel concept. I was tired. I served this with Pepperoni Casserole. Not our favorite bread, but it was tasty.
