    It turned out pretty good for my first attempt. I will definitely make it again. I used this same recipe for pizza dough, I just added a 1/4 cup of olive oil, when mixing the water and flour. it turned out great

    Perfect! I had to wait longer for the doubt to double in size probably because it was a little cold in the house

    I made this by hand I couldn’t locate my dough hook. It came out great! My oven is s little hot the bread did brown a bit more than I usually would, but that’s not a recipe issue.

    Turned out very well. Adjusted salt to 1.5 teaspoons. Will be using this recipe again.

    Really delicious. Though maybe I needed to put more water in the pan because they didn’t turn out quite as crunchy/crispy I was expecting, but still very good

    Yes I would probably make it again

    Super simple, with a great result. I halved the recipe and did a single loaf, and it worked beautifully.

    Nice chew, crust was too hard but that's on me because of my oven temperature. Shy on salt but perfect with a nice slather of good quality butter. Will definitely make again with oven temp adjustment. 👍

    Middle was doughy but probably due to my lack of kneading
