   As you can see by previous Greek bread recipes, the
   Greek Housewives made plenty of bread. These recipes
   are directly from Greece and are in fairly large
   quantity.However this and other bread recipes can
   easily be halved for the smaller hosehold. All yeast
   breads freeze well too.
   Crumble yeast in the warm water and let dissolve. Beat
   the margarine until light and mix into the flour and
   yeast mixture. Then stir in the oil, sugar, salt,
   cinnamon, eggs if using ( a lighter baked good ) and
   the milk, adding “ more if needed”  to produce a
   kneadable nonsticky dough. Knead smooth and elastic.
   Cover in a large bowl and let rise double. Punch down
   and let rise double again. Shape into 5 loaves and
   place in pans. Beat egg and milk together and brush
   loaves. Slash top of each bread. Bake 400 for 15
   minutes and then 375 for 30 to 40 minutes or until
   golden and done. Recipe can be halved easily.
