This Egg Casserole Bread is a batter bread so it is quick and easy! It is another bread that can be made in a pot. To mix things up a bit, I baked this bread in an oven proof bowl instead of a casserole dish.
I only made half of the recipe and used a 50-50 mixture of home-milled white whole wheat flour and commercial all-purpose flour. As you can see, the crust is a little bit crumbly, but it wasn’t dry. It actually tasted moister a couple of days after I made it.

- 6 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 2 envelopes instant yeast
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 cups water
- 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 3 large eggs
In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt. Heat water and butter until very warm (120° to 130°F). Gradually add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally.
Add eggs and 1/2 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in remaining flour to make a stiff batter.
Turn the batter into 2 greased 1-1/2 quart casseroles. Cover; let rise in warm, draft free place until double in size, about 40 minutes.
Bake the loaves at 375°F for 30 to 35 minutes or until done.
Remove the bread from casserole dish and cool on a wire rack.
I turned it upside down to slice it. It made things much easier. And, even though the bread was a bit crumbly, the addition of the white whole wheat flour gave it a great flavor. My sons liked it and thought it tasted a little bit like their favorite Oatmeal Bread.
It tasted good plain, spread with butter or Carrot Marmalade. I also enjoyed some with peanut butter. Yummy!
