The person who gets the bean in their portion of this wonderful sweet bread becomes ruler of the day (or week) at Mardi Gras time in New Orleans. Even though this is a traditional holiday bread, it's wonderful ANY time of year. The mixing and heavy kneading may be done in the bread machine, if desired. From an old Family Circle cookbook.
