This is NOT a dessert bread, it is a bread for sandwiches or served with a meal. It is on the sweet side, like a hawaiian bread. I have made it into "buns" for cook-out hamburger sandwiches with RAVE reviews from my guests. I had originally found this recipe in an Ohio Power Company magazine, yrs ago and keep going back to it for BBQ time.
