I had a fabulous result so thank you - i took this bread to my mother's on Good Friday and it cut beautifully and we put butter on it and everyone loved it. I added chopped walnuts to give some texture.

I have made this bread before and I still remember what my dear sweet bro. had to say about it. Of all the breads I have baked, this one happens to be my picky eater brother Manav's most favourite bread. When he had the first piece of this, he said and may I quote, "I have just one word for this". When I asked him what that one word was, he replied, "Delicious!" :-) What did you think? Hahaha!! I did use only 2 eggs, though, which is something I really wanted to point out. Also, I used 3 tbsps. margarine(melted) as a substitute for butter. I cut down on the baking powder and salt by half a tsp. each. I also added a cup of walnuts(chopped roughly) to the batter of the bread before baking. My parents enjoyed this bread with their evening cup of tea. This recipe is very good and defnitely a keeper.
