Swedish Bread

My grandfather was from Sweden and every Christmas my grandmother would make loaves and loaves of this bread to give to people. It's a slightly sweet bread and so yummy! The prep time is an estimate. Y'all know that sometimes bread takes longer to rise than you anticipate! :) Makes two loaves.
