I’m so pleased with this! It’s dense, fluffy, moist, and overall lovely. Despite what looks like a lot of sugar, it’s not very sweet, and it really does need a glaze, but I didn't use the glaze in the recipe because of the ambiguity about what kind of sugar to use. I improvised a bit – halved the recipe, used 1 tsp. vanilla and ½ tsp. almond baking emulsion, since that’s what I had (which is, I think, a little weaker than almond extract), added a tablespoon of poppy seeds, and baked it in a loaf pan. I sprayed my loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray instead of following the instructions to grease and flour the pan, and I won’t do that again, haha – definitely grease and flour! For the glaze, I combined 1 cup confectioner’s sugar with 2 tablespoons of beer – sound weird, I know, but it SO works.
