This is a recipe my Mom gave me, that my Gram used to always make, when she was a kid...This was my first time making it. I loved that it wasn't real sweet, and is best served toasted with butter. I didn't add nuts to mine, only because I was fresh out. You can make a glaze, as I did with one loaf, This bread would be great with a nice hot cup of java! Enjoy!
