    BelleTerre's Note:

    This bread is from my Amish Grandma's recipe collection. My favorite times with Grandma were always centered around the kitchen and this was one of my favorites to make with her. I've updated it slightly, since Grandma didn't have electricity to work with, but it still tastes (almost) the same. This is still a family favorite at holiday gatherings and with Easter coming up it'll be a hit!

      This is one of the softest and fluffiest white breads I have ever had! The crust came out a little crisp for me (I like my crust soft). Next time I will try reducing the cooking time a little and brushing the top with butter. Thank you BelleTerre!
