This bread is AMAZING! I wanted a recipe with eggs and milk in it but didn't want to bake a challah. Although I'm not the kind who would usually try a recipe that wasn't reviewed, this recipe looked pretty good and so I went ahead anyway. I don't have a bread machine, so I did it all manually. I combined all the wet ingredients and then added 1 cup of flour at a time.. I kneaded for 10 minutes and let it rise for 1 hour (first rise). And then I shaped it into a loaf and let it rise for another hour.. I can't begin to tell you how GREAT it smelled when it was baked! Just beautiful! Since I subbed butter for the oil.. it had an incredibly buttery aroma! HMM. :) I'm sooo keeping this recipe. Thanks Chef Glaucia!
