Bernard Clayton's Egg Harbor bread

Here's part 15 in my Bernard Clayton series. Lol. 

I needed a rich white loaf for my daughter's sandwiches this week,  so I found this one in Bernard Clayton's New complete book of breads.  

I didn't have time for all the folds, and substituted some of the flour with wheat germ and fed starter.

It looks really rich. Posting crumb shot later.

Oh that looks great.  I haven’t made an egg bread yet which is odd because I LOVE egg bread.

Thanks dude.  The funny thing is that there's no eggs in it.  Lol. Its named after a place.  It does have an egg wash you brush on top.

This loaf tastes so good it blows my mind.  It's soft like velvet. The bottom pic is my fried catfish sandwich I made using it.
