This is a very nice recipe. The flavor is very good, the outside was crusty and the inside crumb is moist. I made as directed, except for brushing the butter on the top (I didn't do it at all). I think when I make it next time - and there will be a next time - I will brush the top with a bit of melted butter only, after it comes out of the oven, when it is just a bit warm (so it will soften the crust). Thanks for posting this on here!
