I have made this for bread for over 40 yrs. using Aunt Maude's recipe. She was in her 80's when she shared this recipe. People have ask for the recipe, then changed "things" and said it doesn't taste like yours. Use only ingredients listed, no substitutes. This is very delicious. Toast with butter for breakfast and a cup of coffee.
