This recipe comes from singer/songwriter Christine Lavin, who has written a song about this and who gives the recipe out at her concerts. This recipe is as good as she is -- fabulous! The only difference is that she makes it in 2 loaf pans; I cut the recipe in half and make a single loaf pan. When cutting it in half, I make it with four eggs and skim milk, and it's fairly WW friendly, and extremely yummy.
