Hi, Nancy. I'm sorry for the disappointing results! If you wish to try the recipe again, you might want to add an additional 1/2 cup of water, according to the writer of the recipe. She also suggested adding more raisins and said that the results of the recipe will depend on climate. I hope that helps!

I tried the Sweet Cinnamon Oatmeal Bread (p 25 "Homemade Bread special issue), and while it smelled heavenly, it didn't rise AT ALL. The directions said to combine all dry ingredients, then the fruit and sugar, and then hot water to the whole thing. Complete waste of time and effort. Very disappointing.

To the editor, and the writer of the recipe:

Thank you both for your reply. I live overseas, but have access to an American Military base and their BX, which is where I purchased the magazine. Your reply was most helpful, and I will be trying this one again, plus all the other ones, as our winters are long and cold and dark.

Hi, Lynnette! I checked with the writer of the no-knead bread recipe, and here is what she said:

It's a very loose and runny dough, unlike most bread dough, and it might require experimenting a little because there are so many variables.
The writer's suggestions include: add more flour and/or less water; reduce the proofing time by as long as several hours (12-14 hours might work or 9-10 in warmer weather); and to prolong the proofing time, place the dough in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight, then proof at room temperature until it's ready.
