Now, here is something that my family gets every year at Easter. I am putting it on Recipezaar to immortalize it. My grandmother is notorious for not writing her recipes down. So, when you ask her how much flour she used she will hold out her hands and say "this much". Well, this year I'm getting it down while I still can (I get this recipe every year and lose it about a month after Easter). This recipe is for a traditional Italian sweet bread which my grandmother has been known to serve with those salami-style cured sausages. We also like to just eat this bread with coffee. I have shown the traditional method of making this recipe but you can also use the dough setting on your bread machine- I did it for the first time yesterday. The amounts below are for half a batch since the whole batch is too large for a bread machine and it yields 4-5 regular sized loaves or 2 massive ones.
