Scarsdale Home Baked Protein Bread

I followed the recipe exactly and my bread turned out fabulous. Just make sure you have a small bread pan and a lot of time, because you need to let it rise about 2-3 hours and bake 1 hour.

1 cup of warm water,
1 tablespoon of dry yeast,
1/2 teaspoon salt,
1 teaspoon sugar,
1/2 teaspoon cider vinegar,
1/2 cup of soy flour,
1/4 cup gluten flour,
1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour,
Standard small bread pan (7 3/8 x 3 5/8 x 2 1/4 inches)

Pour water into mixing bowl. Sprinkle dry yeast on water and let stand until it dissolves (about 5 minutes). Mix in salt, sugar, cider vinegar. Sift thoroughly, then gradually add soy and gluten flours, then whole wheat flour.
Mix slowly until dough stiffens and does not stick to sides of bowl (you may used a food processor, following machine directions, for this step).
Lightly flour a board then roll out the dough on it. Knead well (about 5 minutes) until dough feels smooth and elastic. Coat bread pan with no-stick vegetable spray. Shape the dough to fit, set it into the pan, cover with dish towel and set in a warm place to rise to about the top of the bread pan (2 to 3 hours). Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Bake bread for about 1 hour or until well browned. Keep in refrigerator.

My dough did not "rise to about the top of the bread pan".
This was the second time I made the recipe and the bread was delicious. I will make it again.
