This is one of my favorite breads. It never fails that I am always asked for this recipe. It’s best served cold, right out of the refrigerator. Perfect for a warm summer morning, paired with my hot coffee.
Hot coffee in the summer. I used to make fun of my parents for that. I get it now. Totally. They too had to raise 4 children. Yeah, hot coffee in the summer makes sense to me now!
This recipe makes two loaves. I always put the second loaf in the freezer (wrapped up in foil, then a freezer bag). That way I can enjoy it weeks later! Or we bring it camping for a home baked breakfast treat! Enjoy!
