JoEllen's notes for this recipe:
This is the recipe my mother-in-law made for her 5 boys and twin girls. she had very little time as she had to iron every shirt for the boys and her husband for the week and cook every meal.She was a Wonder Woman who was a clergy wife, Sunday school teacher and mom. She made all of the kid's clothes as well and quilted for the local shelter. This is her quick recipe for yeast bread. I received this in 1972.

Baked today, The Black Magic Cake, Brown Sugar Cookies, and Apricot Yeast Bread. Good day as all turned out well. I will have to up load my recipe soon for Chocolate Orange Cake. I thought of it in the middle of last night! My 21 year old daughter moved home this week-end, my 30 year old niece came to California from Texas to stay with us. She came to live in our state! I hope she finds work and loves it here. We have found her to be a great cook!
