I am not sure were this recipe came from originally. My Mom and I have been baking this bread for about 38 years. It is really good on a cold morning with a cup of coffee and spread butter and jelly on it while it is still warm. This is also a favorite of my kids, they usually see who can get here firtst to get the end piece.
