    Although this was not really batter bread (yeast bread that is beaten rather than kneaded and formed) I was still eager to try it. It had great reviews and enticing ingredients. But I should have paid more attention to the high ratio of eggs to flour because if I had I probably could have predicted that not only is this not batter bread, it’s not bread at all. The texture is very eggy and has no crumb. It smelled good as it was baking and it tasted good too. But this is more like an oven omelet, so for that reason alone this recipe was very disappointing.  -  15 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great bread! I used whole wheat flour. Next time we will try using jalapeno peppers for even more spice! Thanks for the recipe!  -  05 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
