Let me say first that I am a complete novice baker. No, beyond that, I'm a baking idiot. I have never made bread before, but I wanted to try in an effort to save some grocery money and reduce the amount of preservatives and other assorted one finds in store-bought bread in my diet. But I know nothing of the yeasty mysteries of bread making. Which is why I know that this bread's failure to rise was all my fault. I am giving this recipe 5 stars because even though mine came out flat and dense, it tastes like heaven. The first two rising times went just fine, but when I put it in the pan to let it rise the third time, it rose only so far and then sort of deflated. Are there any experienced bakers who might know where I went wrong? Again, the flavor of this bread is amazing, and we are certainly going to eat it. And I will try, try again!
