The name says it all—this bread has a wonderful texture, and just wait till you smell it baking! You can use an egg substitute instead of real eggs, which is what I used for this recipe.

Made this for my other half to share at a weekly group session, & it was definitely a success! Even had requests for the recipe, so that says a lot about this bread! I particularly like it with a thin spread of cream cheese! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC recipe tag]
