This is my mother-in-laws recipe. The only one she has used for 60 years. She has sold this to a local restaurant for their breakfast grilled cinnamon toast. It is a heavy, dense bread that she also uses for raisin bread. She usually bakes once a week and then freezes the bread ahead(if she can get it in the freezer before the the rest of us get ahold of it)!

The picture is her raisin bread.
