Buttery Egg Bread recipe found (just in time for T-giving)


 Thanks for your help on this topic.  I searched all over the web, and nobody even on this impressive site had the recipe I was looking for.  Fortunately, a family member found an old copy of this spectacular, no-knead, crusty bread.  Always a hit w. my people on special occasions.  Anyone who would like to substitute more specific measurements (like 'stick of butter'), please do!

 Monkey Bread (so-called by the friend of my mother who gave her the recipe circa '68)

3/4 stick butter
1 pkg yeast dissolved in water (half cup)
1/4 cup sugar
3 c flour
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1/2 tsp salt

Add half flour to all other ingredients; mix and let rise one to two hours; beat down adn add remaining flour; put batter in fridge; grease top w. melted butter and cover and let stay in fridge; two hours before serving take out of fridge; drop by spoonfuls into two well buttered pans; melt one stick of butter and pour evenly over bread in pans; let rise two hours and bake at 375 for 45 minutes.
