Nana made this for holiday dinners. It is very easy to do and my boys argue on who has had the most. Simple to do.

This is a super easy, super buttery recipe. Usually Buddha does all our baking, but being the 'butterholic' that I am, I just had to try my luck at it with this recipe. I too, had to knead the bread well rather than 'stir until blended' but really didn't see it as a problem. I used buttermilk instead of regular milk and what I got was a wonderful ring of sweet and buttery bread slices! This recipe is wonderful because you can have fresh rolls with the butter already in them and you no longer have to let your meal get cold while you butter your bread. :) This would be great bread for breakfast (with jam on it, yummy) or dinner with a nice soup, stew, steak, or just about anything. Tell your Nana a little Birdie from Chattanooga says "Thank You!"
