Not at all what I expected
I was expecting a result resembling a regular loaf of bread (i.e. a loaf that I could slice and use as toast and/or sandwiches). Instead this more closely resembles a banana bread. In fact, that's exactly what it resembles. A dessert loaf. Like a banana bread or zucchini loaf. It has the same texture, density, etc. However, in contrast, it's not sweet like a dessert bread. That's what's throwing me off. It has the consistency/texture of a dessert bread but the taste of a regular loaf of bread that would be used for sandwiches. I don't quite know what to make of it, or do with it. I don't feel like I can serve it as a dessert loaf as it lacks the necessary sweetness (imagine serving regular bread as a desert) and I feel I can't use it for sandwiches as it'll crumble and fall apart (imagine trying to use banana bread to build a sandwich). On the up side, it's super moist, and looks lovely. Very impressive looking actually. And the house smelt amazing as it was baking. I think if it was sweeter it could make a lovely dessert loaf. Add some cinnamon or other spices in there too. As it stands, it's a bit too bland for a dessert bread/loaf, and it certainly isn't meant as a regular loaf of table bread. As it stands, I don't know what I'm going to do with this loaf....perhaps serve it with butter (in place of biscuits) to have with soup...Yeah, I think that could work.
Cons: Not sweet enough for a dessert bread & certainly n
