“This is a bread that bakes with a hard crust on the outside and soft flavorful bread inside. For me, the crust comes out a bit dark but it might just be my oven. The flavor is superb though! To decrease rising time, I set up a space heater on my granite counters to warm the counters and increase the air temperature near the dough.I have taken 1/4 of the ingredients and made it successfully in the bread machine, too!”
4 loaves
