This bread turned out sooooo good, especially for the first attempt! It looks like a heavy, dense loaf, but it’s surprisingly light. The texture is very moist with a soft crumb. I also think it’s the perfect amount of sweetness. Just enough to make you feel like you’re having a treat, but not enough to give you a sugar rush.
