MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 17, 2011

This tasted really really good - I served it to company and ALL of it went. Just one thing though, I thought it was going to be a disaster as the loaves 'flopped' completely when they came out the oven. Thankfully though, once it was cut it looked fine and tated wonderful.
