This is extremely good, and that's coming from my EXTREMELY picky siblings. They don't even butter this; they just eat it plain. My siblings are CRAZY about this bread!!! It also makes 2 loaves, which helps in our family where it gets devoured as fast as people are allowed to eat it. BE VERY CAREFUL about the bread being done...the first time I made it it looked done on the outside, but about an inch in the middle was still uncooked, so I had to bake it again...WITH the icing.
