Hi Ed, I tried the recipe last weekend, and the loaf turned out extremely small! The texture was dense, but it tasted OK. It only rose to about half the size I expected. I do not know if my measurements were correct, as I stated in my original message about my lack of math skills (especially fractions it seems (IMG:http://www.sugarbustersforum.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/blink.gif) ). I DO know how important correct measurements are especially in baking, so I must assume that I did not have the correct amount of yeast in there (if not one of the other ingredients as well). I think I only used one teaspoon of the yeast. I do have to laugh at myself, because Im not a total dummy, just horrible at math.... I will try this again (with any suggestions given by this board), because I DO want to have bread again on occasion! Thanks again for your help Ed, I will let you know how the next loaf turns out. Teri

a packet of yeast is 3 teaspoons. a full loaf of bread would use one packet. mine makes 1 1/2 pound loaf. if yours makes a one pound loaf I would use two teaspoons and add a dab of honey to make it rise. Yeast needs sugar to rise properly. Hope that helps. dona
