Okay, when the recipe says to get out the bubbles . . .do it, or you will have holes in your bread. I had to laugh when bf cut into the bread and started complaining. It's all my fault, of course. The recipe warns you! And I used hot jalapenos, which is a bit too hot for me. But otherwise, delicious! Bf really liked it despite the holes and heat. And since the holes and the heat are all my fault, I'm still giving it a 5. I wanted to use it in my bread machine, so I scaled the recipe to 12 servings. But I need to add more water, because it didn't go together well enough (I didn't add the cheese and jalapenos until the fruit and nut beep). Then when I added the cheese and jalapenos, it was too liquidy and I had to add more flour (see where this is going?). Then my kneading cycle was over but the flour wasn't all combined in the dough so I just took it out of the bread machine and kneaded a bit by hand, then followed the recipe as is. But I didn't bother to try to get out the bubbles before I placed it in the loaf pan, and I forgot about it and let it rise too long. So. . .it looked funny, was a bit spicy, and had a big hole in the middle. But again--completely my fault! So when I try it again I'll have to follow the instructions a little better and it'll turn out perfect. :o) (Well, that's if I remember . . . .)
