    thanks for the input.!!!

    I also have been bread baking for over 40 years and actually had my own baking business. But I posted as I received the recipe from the international group. I will again edit to say double :)

    Yep - much better directions. That's what I ended up doing - except it took longer than 45 min. I also used about 3 pkgs of yeast in all. I am an experienced bread maker. #17 could say: Let rise until double

    Thanks for all the input. I received the recipe from an international recipe group who coments was that it was very good.

    Thanks for the link.
    I went there but saw no comments so I don't know how relaible it may be either

    As one knows working with yeast may be tricky. As with rising, the instructions say double or 45 minutes. This all depends on how warm the kitchen is etc.

    I 'll just revise the recipe to say rise double and when punched down and divided. let that double also

    thanks again!

    The recipe needs a bit more yeast and a much longer time to rise. Here is a more reliable recipe:,166,148174-239192,00.html

    The safety net of having a coffee cake in the freezer is VERY appealing to me, midge! Thanks and my 5.
