Sue Ford knows that I'm always a sucker for a delicious bread. Reggie Dwork posted a Greek Easter Bread to the bread bakers digest in January, from More Bread Machine Magic, by Linda Rehberg and Lois Conway (St. Martin's Press).  Reggie wrote: This bread always draws rave reviews when shared with friends.  Don't pass it up.  It's also a bread that defies the rules because the dough looks more like a batter than a bread dough in some machines.  Have faith, it will bake up just fine. Sue modified the recipe a bit and her changes follow.

Here are Sue's changes, for the Toastmaster ABM. Note the additional ingredients

sweet bread cycle, light crust.

This bread may also be prepared manually, or shaped after an initial rise in the abm, and baked in a 375F oven for about 25 minutes.  In this case, be sure to press a hard-boiled egg into the top before the second rise for a traditional loaf.
