This recipe made a bread that was DELICIOUS. It's somehow dense and light at the same time (I can't explain it, but that's definitely a good thing), and very sweet in addition to the tang I expect from sour dough. It wasn't QUITE as sour as I'd like, but I was using a pretty immature starter... and it was a sweet starter (The "Amish Friendship Bread Starter" from allrecipes).
Like another reviewer, I used water instead of milk and did not add any water to the egg wash, just the egg! Because of that first change my rise times took quite a lot longer, almost 3 hours the first time and more than 2 the second; definitely worth it, though. I microwaved water in a pyrex measuring cup until the microwave was good and warm and let them rise in there; perfect! I also sprinkled sesame seeds on top with the egg wash, I couldn't resist! Bet my neighbors will love their loaf for Christmas.
