Could go to 3 stars or 5 stars. Had a slightly smaller pan than was called for in the directions. Bread took longer than 40 minutes to cook and consequently the top and sides were burned. Inside was delicious. Rest of directions were accurate and easy to follow.
This bread is great. It's excellent alone with a fruit jam or when used in french toast or as a sandwich bread. It is very rich though. Very! But it's quite good. The dough will fool you after mixing it's still quite oily and it will seem like you forgot a step but trust the process it will workout. The overnight refrigerator proof takes care of this. A little flour on the board the next day and you are ready to mold.
The red spread is amazing!
