    byZula's Note:

    I got this recipe from our local Bermudian newspaper 'The Royal Gazette' in the late 90's. It's really a very good recipe (tasty) and makes a nice solid loaf of bread. Great for sandwiches! I love egg bread! This recipe makes 5 loaves of bread. Since I never feel like going through the math and cutting down the recipe; I only use it when there's room in my freezer for the extra loaves. Sad, I know.
