I made this bread for the second time this morning. The first time I made it, it didn't turn out the way I had hoped, but it was my fault! First, I decreased the sugar - only used 1/3 cup; second, I used my stand mixer with the bread hook but obviously didn't knead the bread as long as I should have because I could taste the yeast.
This time I used the 2/3 cup sugar called for and kneaded the dough in the stand mixer until the dough was crawling up the bread hook. When I took it out of the bowl, I continued to knead it by hand for a few minutes more, ensuring all the ingredients were well mixed. The end result was two perfect loaves, that baked up perfectly in 30 minutes. I couldn't resist the smell of the fresh baked bread and cut a couple of slices right away! Absolutely amazing and what surprised me, is the sugar was not overpowering in the finished loaf! Having nailed this recipe, I am not sure I'll ever use my bread machine again!
