    This recipe comes from my best friend's aunt. It is a wonderful, chewy sweet bread that I can't keep my hands off of whenever I make it! Just a great, simple sweet bread recipe.

      I've never made bread before and chose to try it out. I chose this recipe and am so happy I did! My husband loves it and says it was the best bread he has ever had. Thats pretty good since he is a bread connoisseur! I am going to make this recipe a tradition in my family!

      I added some red food coloring and made it into 2 heart shaped breads for valentine's day, then drizzled them with a light strawberry glaze. They turned out lovely and was a big hit with my daughter! Used my bread machine to make the dough, so it was really simple and fun to make.

      Wonderful and easy recipe. I have made this three times now and each time I get better at braiding! I do a four strand braid (I think it looks prettier). Though, this tastes so good out of the oven that the taste pales when it's been out of the oven for more than a couple of hours.
