This recipe comes from our beloved Grandma Jerke, who is now in heaven with Jesus! She also shared it with our church family in the Shoestring Valley Community Church cookbook, and we are soooo glad she did!
It is such a moist bread, and makes for amazing sandwiches or toast for breakfast. OR you can make it into rolls for dinner! Yum!!!
