I got this recipe from a co-worker back in the summer of 1999. She had gotten it from her mother-in-law. Wherever I go for a pitch in I make this and someone always asks for the recipe. It's the best bread recipe I've ever had sometimes I make a little extra glaze for the top. It is so easy to make the only hard part is waiting to have a slice of it!
