    This is a wonderful tasting bread, that is easy to make.However I had to use a lot more flour, and there was realy no way to knead it. I just used my Bench Scraper to keep turning it and working in the flour.( the dough is realy quite wet) I think next time I will just keep stirring it ,Like I do with my beer bread.

    If I could give this 10 stars I would!! Fast and easy and it has a little sweetness to it. I make it on a baking pan in a round loaf. Use a bread knife to cut and if you toast it, cut the slices a little thicker. I used a little vinagar in some milk for the sour milk. I kneaded on a board and perhaps used about 1/2 cup flour on the board to knead in. My egg was extra large and I needed the extra flour. Some sliced and used my homemade margarine spread and some toasted with margarine and jam. Excellent recipe. I took a photo and will post it. It is like a sweet biscuit recipe but so simple! Love it!!!!
