This recipe turns out wonderful. Some Reviewers thought it was sweet, but I thought it was fine. I thought they were exaggerating. If I don't have bread flour, I substitute it with All Purpose Flour. I've made it a few times and will continue to do so. This is how I make it: 1) Get a large pot, heat the water to warm & let sugar dissolve. Once it's lukewarm, sprinkle in yeast & gently stir once. Let it get foamy for 13-15MIN (I turn on the oven @ 350 for 1MIN, turn it off, & then place the pot of yeast mixture inside to rest. That way it's in a warm environment). 2) Mix salt & oil into yeast. Mix in 3 cups of flour, stir, then add remaining flour. 3) Knead dough INSIDE the pot until smooth, about 6-8MIN. It's not difficult to knead in the pot. It's quick, easy, and less messy. My counter and laziness thanks me :) 4) Oil the pot, coat the dough, cover w/ plastic. 5) Turn on oven @ 350 for 1MIN to create a warm environment. Turn it off, and then place the pot of dough inside. Let rise for 1 HR as directions say. 6) After the 1st rise, punch down dough, turn on oven again @ 350 for 1MIN, turn it off, and place the loaves inside to rise for 30MIN as recipe states. Right before I bake them, I brush melted butter over the tops. I bake them exactly for 31MINS. I love this bread. Thank you so much for posting it. If I just need 1 loaf, I halve the recipe and do it the same way as I described. It's delicious. :)
