This eggy, buttery bread was simple, if a bit time-consuming (mostly inactive time). I wouldn’t recommend this recipe for novice bread-bakers because the dough is quite sticky, but for a moderately experienced baker it was not that all difficult, and the results were well worth dealing with a little bit of a sticky mess. Also, it made the house smell like a bakery. Yum.
