    Made this today and followed the recipe exactly. The middle of the 'bread' certainly doesn't look like the picture. I used plain flour because the recipe didn't specify and by adding a tbls of baking powder, I assumed it would be plain flour.

    The taste is beautiful.
    Not sure if I'll try it again. If so, I might try self raising flour to see if it will rise better and not be so dense.
