I have made this with skim milk, whole milk, and half and half, it comes out tasty every time. I tried egg nog once and it was disgusting. I use butter instead of margarine. The first few hundred loaves I made I used Red Star bread machine yeast and the results were better than with regular yeast. The difference is a bigger fluffier loaf of bread. I used Mediterrainian sea salt a few times but it seemed to make no difference. I have made this with cold egg and milk and it comes out the same as having the ingredients at room temperature. The loaf comes out big and my biggest problem was storage of a gargantuan loaf of bread. A couple of things worked out. First, you can slice it up and put it in a couple of zip lock bags. Second, you can
store it in a Renolyd's oven cooking bag. This bread makes excellent toast(oh,yes), French toast, stuffing, sandwiches, and bread crumbs. It has a sweet flavor. It is addicting, so be careful!
