Posted by request. I have always made a yeast version, which can be very time consuming. I think I will give this one a try. For lucre see Easter Babka.

I am sorry to say it is the worst recipe I have ever made. The bread got really crusty and was very greasy. All you could taste was the butter and eggs.
