You absolutely cannot screw up this recipe.. I tried really hard, but couldn't do it. It was so great. My first try at homemade bread. I forgot to add the water with the first set of ingredients and then added too much flour. I was so flustered, the dough kneaded for 3-4 minutes. I didn't put enough oil in the bowl and the top of the dough dried out. To make things worse, the temp in the house was too cool, even with the oven on and it took two hours to rise. I was about to throw the whole mess out when it finally rose. I punched it down because of all the work I had done and put it in the pans, looking like blobs with appendages. It rose again in about an hour and I baked it. It smelled wonderful!
The bread was so great. I had used a technique my daughter suggested to prevent the crust from being too thick or tough, spraying one spray of water in the oven every 3 minutes for the first 9 minutes. The crust was perfect.
Even my daughter, who has been baking bread for awhile said this was a great bread (and she didn't try it until 5 days later).
I will be making this a lot. The 16-yr-old male in the house even bothers to cut this for himself.
Wow, thanks so much!
