not a very good recipe. aside from HIGHLY doubting grandma had access to "bread flour" 90 years ago.. all it made for me was a dough sludge that took like 3-4 extra cups of flour to get to a workable state. i guess its ok if you like making messes needlessly.

I wanted a simple recipe to make. I wanted to feed my family a homemade bread rather than store bought. This was amazing! I had to pry it out of their hands!

This recipe is Amazing.I have searched for the past year and tried so many recipes in so many different ways,and you would be amazed at how many different ways there are for making bread.And this was the absolute best. I really think it has a lot to do with the combination of the ingredients and the process.basic bread has the same ingredients but the steps in which each is place can differ, so I suggest if you want the best do not stray from the process.Its perfect.

Am in the process of making this recipe. I did change serving size to one 1&1/2 loaf, however, I didn't end up with a sponge. It's more like traditional dough. Letting it rise now but don't know how will turn out!

This looks like a sloppy way to make bread, but after using the sponge method 3 times now I'll never make bread any other way. The bread rises so easily and tastes so good. I have learned to use a flour scraper to fold in the flour to the turned out sponge and keep my hands out of the kneading process until most of the flour has been added. Now it's hardly messy at all and so simple. I've used white, whole wheat and spelt flour using the sponge and all have turned out terrific.
