Was just okay... quite acceptable soon after baking, but rather dry. After being held for a few days, bottom half of loaf was quite dry, eve though wrapped airtight. Top half with glaze was yummy. AM going to try again but tweak the recipe somewhat, maybe 1/2 brown sugar and an extra egg yolk... not sure yet. worth working on though, which is why I gave it 3 stars.

This recipe is amazing! It was so easy to make and delicious. I gave out mini loaves as appreciation to some colleagues today for Thanksgiving. I think they will enjoy the bread as much as I did!
