This is a great one.  It was a hit at both home
and work (although I had no lemon peel and
used orange peel instead).

   3      cups          bread flour

Traditional Greek bread usually served with 1 coin hidden inside
which superstition says bestows luck upon the finder. Do not add a coin to your 
machine but you may add a single raisin at the beep.  This is a delicious sweet 
bread and makes wonderful sandwiches.  This is really one of our favorites.

Recipe originally from  "Kay L. Hitchcock" <HITCHCOC_K@popmail.firn.edu> to The 
TNT Recipes List.
Because of the milk and eggs in the recipe it is not recommended that you use 
the delayed bake option.

Set the bread machine for Sweet Bread (8 for an Oster machine).  Add 
ingredients according to the recommendation of the machine.

When I made this, I had no lemons, so I used orange peel.  It tastes great with 
the orange peel.  I will have to try it with lemon some day.
