There's a reason it's called "artisan" bread. Even with a bread machine, baking bread is an art. You can't just dump everything in the bread machine & expect perfect results. All bread recipes should give flour measurements by weight or as a range when measured by volume. Even though the bread machine helps with the physical work of bread-making, you're still responsible for making sure the dough is right by adjusting the flour accordingly. Flour requirements will vary based on weather conditions. During the initial knead, look at the dough to make sure it's forming a nice smooth ball, not a gummy mess and add more flour if needed. This recipe makes a nice loaf if you pay a little attention to the dough in the beginning.
