Recipe by MA HIKER

This is an old favorite from a recipe pamphlet of healthy meals. For a sweeter taste, use vanilla yogurt.

I really liked the flavor of this bread, and the preparation was wonderfully easy compared to many other breads I've tried. My only complaint is that the final product turned out to be a little dry - I don't know if this was because I substituted sour cream for plain yogurt and an egg for the egg substitute, but I think next time I will add a little extra oil and it will be fine. All in all, though, great recipe - thanks for sharing! :-)
