Description

This is a sweet bread that makes wonderful chicken or turkey sandwiches. This recipe was given to me by a good friend in South Carolina that I met on the Internet. I had the pleasure of eating this bread at her beach home this spring. It makes awesome toast. We can hardly wait to cut it.

Ingredients
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups bread flour
  • 3 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup bread flour
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
Directions
  1. 1. Warm the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat. Mix in the 4 tablespoons butter; stir until melted. Let cool until lukewarm.
  2. 2. Pour milk mixture into bread machine pan. Add 2 eggs, 1/2 cup sugar, vanilla extract, 4 cups bread flour, yeast and salt. Choose Dough setting; press start.
  3. 3. When dough is finished mixing, leave it in the bread machine pan and cover with a towel. Let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  4. 4. Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into two equal pieces and form into loaves. Place the loaves into two lightly greased 9x5 inch loaf pans. Cover the loaves with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  5. 5. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 brown sugar and 1/3 cup flour. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside. In a separate bowl, beat together 1 egg and 1 tablespoon water.
  6. 6. Brush loaves of risen bread with the egg wash and then sprinkle on crumb topping. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, until golden brown.
