Thanks for Sharing. 💗
How much is a stick of butter? It would be better if you listed amounts. Stick of butter means nothing to me. It’s akin to saying “a box of” or “a can of”.

In the U.S., a stick of butter is 8 tablespoons. I have added that to the ingredient list. Thanks for pointing that out! Hope you enjoy the bread!
Ah! 1/2 a cup! Thank you.
