This bread makes the best toast EVER. I also like to add some cinnamon and raisins once in a while ... pure heaven! Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

What a great change for breakfast. I loved dipping my yolks into the bread when I sliced pieces and toasted them to go with my fried eggs. The crevices and cracks captured lots of butter and my oh my was it yummy! I can't wait to make more. Thanks!

Very good! I made as posted except that after I started making it, I realized that I did not have the correct yeast. I used 1 tablespoon of bread machine yeast, and my bread did not have nice holes in it, but was denser than it should be. So if you get into the same situation I suggest that you use more yeast as bread machine yeast is different. Thanks AuntSana for posting a great recipe! Made for Fall PAC '08.
