I've done quite a lot of baking, but for some reason never tried my hand at bread making. This recipe sold me. It worked beautifully. I proofed my yeast before hand with 2 packets, 1/2 cup warm water, and 2 tsp sugar. I then added the flour and 1 1/2 cups more water. I used extra salt and only about 5 cups flour. I used a whole egg instead of whites. Also I cut the slits right before the last rise. It's true, don't skimp on the kneading. All of these 'tweaks' were submitted by other users, I thought I would put them into one post to make things easier for the next newbie. Thanks for the recipe, and thanks to everyone who added their own input.
