This bread is absolutely delicious with a wonderful, slightly sweet flavor! My only change to the ingredients was using Brummel and Brown spread in place of butter. I made it the way I make all my breads -proofed the yeast with 1/2 c warm/hot water & honey & let it sit for 10 minutes until foamy. I combined the salt and most of the flour in my KA mixer & after the 10 minutes, poured in the yeast, remaining water, honey & melted butter. I used my kneading hook & added 1/4 c of flour at a time to the mixing bowl as it mixed, just until the dough cleanly pulled away from the bowl. I kneaded it for 8 minutes, then put it in a large Pam sprayed bowl & covered it with saran wrap. I placed the bowl in the oven which had been preheated to 170 (the lowest my oven goes) and turned off. I left it in the oven until doubled, punched it down, formed 3 loaves & placed it back into the warm oven, uncovered. When the loaves had doubled, I removed them from the oven, preheated it, then placed them back in to bake. I've had issues in the past, with my bread rising, then falling when I uncover it. I never cover it anymore for the 2nd rise. It works great every time and I've never noticed any negative results. Thanks for a great recipe!
