I have made this several times now and it is so easy. When I first started making bread I avoided this recipe as I thought the sponge as oppose to the traditional proofing yeast then adding flour, salt, oil etc was the proper way to make bread. One day however I decided to give it a try - and no looking back. I got up Christmas morning at 6 a.m. and made this recipe. The equivilant on one loaf I made into "Cinnamon Rolls from the land of Nod" The other two I made into loaves for the day. Between 8:30 - 9 o'clock - everything was done! This recipe is so quick to make! Rises like a dream and very quickly - better then any other recipe I have made. I am making again this morning after watching the video for the first time. It states to let rise approx 1 hour or until double. I knew I mine never took that long to rise but today I decided to see what happened. The timer has about 36 minutes left on it and the bread in to the top of the bowl! (first rise) There is no way I will let it go the full hour (if someone has, I'd love to know how it turned out) I'm scared if I leave it that the yeast will exhaust itself.
I have made with both less salt and less sugar - always with good results. ENJOY! We do everytime I make it, the bread disappears at family gatherings - from the oldest to the youngest there - everyone enjoys!
