  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar and salt. Make a well in the center of the flour and pour in the yeast mixture, egg yolks, margarine and warm milk. Stir until a soft dough is formed. Turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and supple, about 6 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
  3. Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in the raisins. 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).
  4. Brush the risen loaves with egg whites. Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 45 minutes, until golden brown.

This tastes so good and it's really easy to make as far as egg breads go. I recommend it highly if you are new to baking egg breads; this is a good introduction. I added 2 T. gluten.

These were WONDERFUL. Like other reviewers, I made them into rolls (baked at 350 degrees for 20 minutes). I also left out the raisins, but only because I didn't have any on hand -- next time, I ...

This bread is delicious! Like the other reviewers, I formed the dough into rolls. The only other difference I made was to omit the raisins. Thanks for the yummy recipe.

I made these tonight for my son's 2nd grade culture project. I was very pleased with how they turned out. They taste great and I hope my son's class likes them.
