I have tried this recipe twice - first by hand and second by using my bread maker on the dough setting. Neither attempt had a good outcome. The bread with the first batch barely rose over the specified times, and the second rose a little more, but both attempts produced a very dense bread like soda or European brown bread. Before making the first batch, I had just proofed my yeast and I always make sure all ingredients are at room temperature. The taste was ok, but the results were nothing like my expectations based upon the picture.
