Clipped this from a magazine, can't remember which. I am posting it because the clipping has become tattered and warn through many years of use. Makes 2 loaves.

This was such a good wholesome recipe, that I had to make it. Only thing I did extra was coat the loaf pans with cinnamon & sugar as well as the top of the dough before baking. Yummmm!
