This was passed down to me by my Mother-In-Law 48 years ago, as it has been through several generations now. This is a most requested recipe for every family gathering. Takes a while to make due to the rising times, and it does make a lot, but freezes well. I use 7 round cake pans however you can use any shape or size pan. I weigh out 16 ounces of dough for each round cake pan. Very worth while the time it takes. Using fresh flour and yeast will give you excellent results.
