Help: buttery egg bread recipe lost, just in time for Thanksgiving

Hi,

 This is my first post, and hope you can help.  My mother's buttery egg bread recipe has disappeared, and I need it for next week.  It consists of flour, eggs, milk, yeast, and salt.  Makes a batter like dough, which rises in the fridge, with one punch down, then left overnight.  It's dropped, soft and spongy, into loaf pans coated with melted butter, resulting in a crunchy crust.  So, I know the outline, just need to recoup the details and proportions.

 Sound familiar?  The troops are hungry!

 Thanks, Paul, psmeers@gmail.com
