The dough for this bread will be wet, but not so sticky because of the higher butter content. Be patient when handling, and try not to add flour along the way, other than to lightly dust the surface. You will be rewarded with a very soft, fluffy and sweet bread. See how the highly elastic dough allowed for a beautiful window pane.
