No bread machine so I followed the directions given in an early comment for soaking the yeast with the sugar etc. Directions worked well but I would have let the dough rise another 30 mins. to an hour next time. When I checked the dough rise after 30 mins I was afraid it wouldn't-- it was still very firm. Dough did rise a lot in the last 30 mins though and I think the bread may have come out fluffier if left to proof longer but that's just an opinion at this point.
The recipe is good and seems trustworthy, if a little bland and yeasty. Was also a bit more crusty than I expected, a heavier, denser bread. Made cinnamon rolls with a part of the batch and made a mess when the filling ran out everywhere, but the cinnamon variety was a little better imo, probably due to adding flavor to the dough, which I am going to try doing myself next time.
