I have made this bread for many years. The recipe comes from and old book, over 25 years ago, The cover has left the book, but I believe it was called Ohio State Fair 4H Winning Recipes or something like this. My SIL wanted a hand made bread recipe. I search along time though my cookbook collection to find it. Thought I would post it to perserve it. I haven't made it in a long long time. This was my go to recipe before the invention of bread machines. I will have to take the time to make it again soon. This recipe has never failed me.Most and so tasty..
