These were dense and did not taste good. I bake GF all the time, and this recipe is flawed. The yeast needs to bloom in the warm milk and sugar, but that's not how this is written. I used brand new fresh yeast and was careful with the temp of the milk. I followed the recipe, figuring there was some test kitchen reason for the procedure, but no. This is a whole Sunday morning I'm not getting back. Should have read the comments first!
Eating Well editors: please either have your test kitchen revisit.
