I really really wanted to give this 5 stars, but I didn't follow the recipe as written. Like many others, I reduced the sugar down to 1/4 cup, and it was the perfect amount. I brushed the loaves with butter before and right after baking, which made for a really delicious crust. I also put a pot of steaming water on the lower rack, as I do most times I make bread. This makes for a pretty, crisp crust. The only real issue I had was that it never rose above the pan. Still delicious though! We love it! **Just want to add- not sure if all the complaints of denseness are because of the amount of sugar, but I did reduce the sugar and my loaves turned out perfectly fluffy. Really great texture!
