My Grandmother Mabel Kennedy Sullivan use to make this as loaves of bread and as buns to eat with butter or as sandwiches.

She sometimes added dried fruits and nuts and made the buns smaller and put chocolate frosting on top.

****I don't have my grandmother's recipe, but I know that this is it, as it is an old recipe from Fleischmann's yeast... the yeast Grandmother used. And... the directions were the same as Grandma use to do, including optional items. I found this recipe online... and as I said.... I know this is the same recipe!!! I was so excited to find it!!!

*** this is not my photo of this bread.
