Bread results

They came

Unlike my previous attempts (from years ago), they were not undercooked, and that's already a plus. They had the right amount of sweetness, so halving the sugar was the right idea, but needed a bit more salt for real flavor.

And they had the texture of *cake* or cornbread. Crumbly. Dense - not heavy - but not breadlike.

I think.

And I feel rather silly.

That I didn't knead it sufficiently. As in, I kneaded in flour until it felt like the right consistency. And then I stopped.

jonbaker liked it, and it tasted fine, so having them for the next few weeks won't be a hardship *plus* I'm now confident I can do it right next time. Kneading. Yeah.
