"Used homemade egg bread as suggested. Thought it was a bit too sweet and the bread stayed soggy in the middle even though I cooked it longer than it called for. Not as impressive as I had hoped it would be."

"I tripled the bread for a family of 5 to eat and still had enough of the egg mixture without having to double it. I also didn't use challah bread, I used homemade oatmeal bread. Everybody liked it!"
