This was a favorite of my brother, Donald. He had a friend that he called"Big Mama" that would make it for him. she would not share her recipe, but I kept fooling with this one until he was satisfied with it. The last step of leaving the bread to cool overnight...never happened. He was at the stove cutting him a piece as soon as it came out of the oven.
