My oldest son came home with this recipe (and a loaf of the bread) as a gift from his 1st grade teacher about 25 years ago! It has been a family favorite ever since. Thank you Mrs. Binz!

I made this bread last night and it is absolutely wonderful. Very moist and flavorful! I wouldn't change a thing. Thank you Sharlene, and I thank you too, Mrs. Binz!
