[[ Marina sent this to me but I don't have a very good answer for her and
knew that someone on list would... - Reggie]]

Reggie:  I wonder if I could ask you a special favor.  I got this recipe
from a friend.  It is so good (flavor) but only makes a 1 lb. loaf.  I
thought simple I'll divide the ingredients and use half again and make a 1
1/2 lb. loaf.  Not so good.  I don't know what happend it was doughy, didn't
rise as well as it should etc.
Here is the orginal, could you please tell me what I need to do to make this
into a 1 1/2 lb. loaf of bread instead of the 1 lb. loaf. This is a bread
machine recipe in a zoe
(is there any other brand, I think not, love it)

Basic White 1 lb loaf

2 c bread flour
2 T sugar
1/2 t salt
1 T butter
1 T milk
3/4 c water
1 t yeast

can be used for flavor bread 1/4 cup parm 1 t onion powder
1/4 cup chopped walnuts and 1 tea. pumpkin pie seasoning

Now here is what I did on 1 1/2 lb. loaf

3 c flour
3 T sugar
3/4 t. salt
1 1/2 T butter
1 1/2 T Milk 
1 1/8 c water
1 1/2 t yeast
as I said this was not great, didn't rise very well heavy and doughy. 
I would really appreciate any help you could give me.
For your very welcomed help here is an old recipe from my mother in law for
rolls enjoy.
Happy holidays
