Many people have commented not the odd way she "shaped" the loaf, but did you see her punch that dough? "Punching" down is just a figure of speech. Be gentle with the dough. I am proofing my bread right now. From the recipe to the little "instructional" video there appears to be some kind of disconnect.

Delicious bread! It is so light and tasty! I took a slice to my wife to try a bite. She took it and I said, "Well, what do you think?" She said, "I think you didn't give me a big enough piece to taste!"

I agree with BuggsBonnie. Once the final rising is vital for presentation.

I did not make this bread, but I believe the reason the loaves look kind of flat is because she was flattening the dough when she put it in the pans. I have done that before with the same result. The dough should be pressed out into a rectangle and then rolled up jellyroll style then put into the pan, seamside down. That way when it rises you get the nice pretty top.

This was delicious and very easy to make for someone that is not used to making bread. It's dense and sweet. Now my family doesn't want any store-bought bread. Thank goodness is simple to make. :)

Maybe the poking and the flat loaves is the "Amish" part of the recipe.

Can't say I've ever seen loaves shaped that way..

A few thoughts...NEVER add salt directly to yeast. It will kill the yeast. I've made this recipe hundreds of times. Less sugar, less oil, and when you put the loaves into the pan, roll the flattened out dough to make round loaves. It proofs and turns out a LOT nicer - I think the original method shown in the video is attempting to mimic pain de mie, but I wouldn't poke it at the end.

I think the bread was over proofed before baking and collapsed a little. Still looks like nice bread.

I love this recipe, it's the first bread recipe I ever made with yeast. The reason the bread is flat in the video is because they didn't allow the dough to rise in the loaf pans. Once you place the pans in the oven the dough is not going to rise much more since the heat will kill the yeast. I do things different from the video. I proof in a 4 cup Pyrex measuring cup. Measure my water and then add sugar. I microwave the liquid for a temp of 110F, it will cool quickly on the counter if you go above, then add the yeast at 110F. Once I have a head on the proof, I mix everything in the largest bowl that I have (glass salad bowl). I'm able to knead the dough in the bowl, without having to splash flour all over the countertop to knead. To setup for the rise, I place the dough ball onto wax paper and wash/ rinse the bowl in hot water and then oil the bowl. Return the dough ball back to the bowl and flip the dough ball over to cover the entire surface with oil. I set the bowl on top of a sma
