This was wonderful. A great idea, and a tasty bread. It is a bit plain--after all, it's plain bread. I didn't have instant yeast, so I did mine the old-fashioned 1 hour 1st rise, 30 minutes 2nd rise method. Worked beautifully. I noticed that 2 reviewers said the recipe doesn't tell you what to do with the sugar--it does. First sentence. Usually AR leaves a note when they make a correction on a recipe, so I'm not sure what happened there. Rather than an egg wash, I gave mine a melted butter wash to add flavor and deepen the color without having to overcook the bread. I used 1 cup unbleached white whole wheat flour (King Arthur brand flour makes this, it's great) in place of 1 cup of white AP flour, & it was great. We were kind of sad to eat him! I'll definitely make this again when I'm serving small children, they'll love it :) Thanks for the recipe!
