    Made this loaf tonight. Rather disappoined. Follow the instructions and doubted the lack of a second proofing.  It really needs it. Doughy and heavy. I'll try it again but will definitely let it proof a second time.

    Has anyone tried this bread. It looks scrumptious. What size loaf pan is recommended?
