"I found this bread to have a moist and cheesy flavor! I just did 2 changes-I didn't have canola oil, so I used vegetable oil and also used 2% milk since that was what I'd had available!"

"I followed recipe exactly as written. It was wonderfully moist but lacking in flavor. Needs some creole spices to jazz it up. 3 stars for texture, moistness & presentation out of the cast iron pan."
