Fabulous tasting and easy to make. Most importantly you think you are eating at Redstone! <br/>I took a cue from another reviewer and mixed about 1tbls of softened butter with couple tbls of brown sugar and sprinkled on top of bread before baking. It did give it a nice crusty top. The maple butter makes the bread complete.
OMG this is every bit as good as it is in the restaurant. I used a Calphalon nonstick pan and baked it on a pizza stone which turned out great. Next time I would lavishly butter the pan vs. nonstick spray. I do have to think Redstone sneaks in two sticks of butter. It was simply perfect with chili and Prosecco.
I made these in muffin tins instead of a pan which is great for serving. Amazing recipe!!
