"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."

  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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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.

This recipe has been updated. It now lists the 4 tablespoons butter in Step 1 and the 1/4 cup butter in Step 5. No other butter is required in the recipe. - The Staff

This recipe did not work at all for me, maybe because I do not have a bread machine. I followed the recipe to the letter and kneaded the dough as I do with all my other (successful) bread dough...

To the person who said they used the oven instead of the machine: thanks! My mother and I have been using my great great Babka's recipe for years. It's still handwritten. I just joined and will ...
