Add yeast mixture and the beaten eggs, mix to blend well. Add enough of the remaining flour to make a soft but stiff dough. 
Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes, until dough is smooth and elastic. Place dough in a lightly buttered bowl, turning once to grease the surface.

Bake at 175 degree for 25 minutes in a pre heated oven, placing foil over loaves the last 10 minutes, if loaves are getting too brown. Remove loaves from pans and let cool on racks.
