This recipe is good. I changed it a bit. I use whole milk instead of water and used all purpose white flour. I don't scoop the flour out of the bag as this makes the dough heavy, I sprinkle it from the bag into the measuring cup. I make sure I don't use over 5 cups of flour.
After I scald the milk I put in 3 tablespoons of molasses and a 1/4 cup of honey and 2 cups of rolled oats and 3 tablespoons of butter. I stir it around and then add a half cup of cold water, i check with my fingertips if its feels really warm but not hot I will add the yeast, it should feel very warm but not hot. I put in the yeast and stir it around and then wait 10 minutes, add 2 cups of flour and stir it around and then add one more cup of flour.
I place about a half cup of flour onto the table and carefully scoop the dough out of the pan onto the flour and carefully just keep putting flour onto the dough and just lightly patting it in until I can start to kneed, it takes me about 3 minutes doing this and then I kneed about 3 minutes, put the dough into a bowl in a very warm place, sometimes the car is really warm and I set it in the car with a towel on it, don't set directly in the sun, did that once and it started cooking it slightly, just find a really, really warm place and set it there.
I use to over knead and put in too much flour and now as soon as its not sticking to me, its still really sticky but not sticking all over me. I stop kneading and now it comes out great.
Hope this helps.
