I don't have a bread machine. Worried about the "dense and chewy" comments, I used 1 Tbls yeast. I scaled the milk with the butter, honey and salt and let cool. I dissolved the yeast in the 1/2 cup warm water, then added the remaining ingredients and beat about 20 strokes. I then added the recommended 1/2 cup flour, I used white to make it fluffier. Kneeded until smooth and elastic, let rise for 1 and a half hours until triple, beat down and let rest for 5 mins and formed into a loaf. I put it into a buttered loaf pan, and let rise again for another hour or so, until double again. Baked at 350 degrees for about an hour. Lovely, dark brown crust. Slightly sweet, only a little chewy, but very airy. Will make fabulous toast for breakfast.
