      This is the recipe I have used for many years. It is so yummy. It is easy to make and a treat to eat. It is good for every day type bread and wonderful to give as a gift. It is a favorite of my family.

      Thanks for posting this recipe!. I used to make this for my mom years ago and lost the recipe before I had a family of my own to share it with. I made one large round loaf instead of using loaf pans. It was always a hit :)
