I got a beautiful loaf of bread out of this recipe but it raised way too high. The recipe didn't state what size loaf this makes so I don't know if I need to adjust one of my ingredients or the recipe is for a bigger loaf than my bread maker can handle. The max for mine is 11/2 lbs. Hoping you will let us know what size recipe is for. - 25 Feb 2015
