Really good, very easy batter yeast bread. Great addition to any dinner, would be a wonderful side for soup or chili, too. This is one of those recipes I'll do better with the second time though. It rose faster than I anticipated and I was glad I didn't top with a towel or wax paper cause it was coming over the top of the skillet! And next time I'll bake on a lower rack, I baked on the center rack and the top browned before the bottom was thoroughly baked. Wonderful flavor, I'll definitely make again. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
