I came across this recipe in one of my grandmother's cookbooks, it is simply delicious! My youngest son, who is a very picky eater, loves it! I usually make it into little loaf pans and add them to my Christmas Gift Baskets that I give my family and friends. I am sure you will enjoy this bread as much as I do.
