    Won’t work. No yeast. This will be a great lump of dough with no leavening. Someone should have proofed the recipe. - 10/25/19

    Calories a little high. This looks good but wonder about the leavening. Are you using bread flour and yeast that isn't here? Will try this but probably need both in addition. Sounds good. - 4/19/19
