Typo in new book, Yikes!

Hi Folks,

An Amazon reviewer found a typo in one of the recipes, found on page 63.  The water amount by weight is correct but the volume measurement should be 1 3/4 cups, not 3 3/4 cups!  If you already have the book, please make that correction. Sorry about that. We’ll get it fixed for the next printing.  Thanks!

I have the Kindle version and it doesn’t have page numbers. I assume it refers to the master recipe, Bread, at location 1253. If so, the baker’s percentage is wrong too.

Typos spawn typos. I should have said,”Is the baker’s percentage right?”


Agreed but, sadly, we didn’t discover the typo until after they shipped. It’s really embarrassing, which is why I’m trying everything I can to get out the corrected info. Thanks Heather, for your persistence.
