I made this recipe without a bread machine. I proofed my yeast in the warm coffee, so I knew it was good, but then the loaves didn't rise much, so I was worried. They also didn't rise much in the oven, so I thought I was going to end up with bricks. However, after cooling, slicing, and tasting, I am pleased. There is a slight bitter taste (probably from the coffee), but I like it. Here are my changes: honey instead of molasses, because thats what I had. Hazelnut coffee leftover from this morning. Half olive oil, half butter instead of vegetable oil. I also used a little less bread flour, but added some wheat germ and flax seed. Very good, unique recipe. Now I have to figure out what to do with 2 whole loaves of bread... lol
