it turned out! i placed the rising dough closer to the preheating oven and that seemed to have helped. i wasn't convinced that it had risen as much as it should when i decided to bake it, but the end result was moist & tasty! pure bliss, really.
i pretty much followed the martha recipe exactly, except that i used butter instead of shortening and i halved the amount of powdered sugar frosting. we were eager to try it, so i poured the frosting on while the bread was still pretty warm, affecting aesthetic but not flavor.
i'm pretty sure we'll be baking this again. and again!
