Ken, you've discovered the '90s way to make BatMan Bread. Kids
(or their parents) everywhere will be beating a path to your 
mailer to get the recipe.

Actually, it looks to me as though the yeast might have peaked
too soon.  This happens when the liquid is too hot, the rising
temperature is too high, or there's too much sugar (honey)
