I always loved it when Daddy would make this bread, it is so good. You can slice it and spread butter on it and toast it for breakfast. Delicious.
You can use this same recipe to make cinnamon rolls. After you roll the dough up cut slices about 3/4 of an inch down length of roll. Place rolls into greased cake pans, cover and let rise until doubled. Bake at 375 approximately 20 minutes or until browned and tester comes out free of dough. Let cool about 15 minutes and then coat each roll with icing. You can melt vanilla prepared frosting in the microwave 30 seconds at a time, to use for glaze
