So I took another shot at the one hour bread recipe I goofed up last week and it turned out perfectly.
I made sure not to add too much yeast this time and I also used bread pans this go round. Directions only said to let it rise for 25 minutes but I think next time I'll do around 35-45min. At least now we can make a sandwich that will fit in our lunch boxes. I also made some homemade butter this morning - soooo good on the fresh bread.
