This loaf is moist, flavorful and gorgeous. I believe I had an air pocket in my loaf and the center fell, but that was totally my fault... Im usually very good about making sure everything is prepared and ready to go but I made this in a bit of a rush and I guess ya flop when you rush! LOL Its delicious. I recommend this to all!
