I made this bread when my boyfriend came to meet my family for the first time. It obviously made an impression on him because we eventually got married! This batter bread requires no kneading, so even novice bakers will find it easy. —Natercia Yailaian, Somerville, Massachusetts

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, butter, sugar, eggs, sour cream, seasonings and 3 cups flour. Beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on high for 3 minutes. Stir in remaining flour (batter will be sticky). Do not knead. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

  3. Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown (cover loosely with foil if top browns too quickly). Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Yield: 1 loaf (16 slices).

"We grow our own dill and dry it. My husband always request this bread when he smells the dill drying. We love this bread and it is easy to prepare. The first time I made it, I forgot the salt. I won't make that mistake again! It was very bland even with all the other flavors. Made by the recipe, this bread has a great flavor."
