    The bread is fabulous!!! So fluffy & soft - I will make again.

    I did use another recipe for the icing becasue I made my own icing sugar and not having the weight made it easier to look one up with weights rather then cup units - I've discovered in the past that 1 cup of icing sugar is less weight then 1 cup granulated sugar.
