I made this recipe for the first time this morning. Sunday’s are typically crazy in our house. Rushing for showers and getting ready for church. Due to the current quarantine we watched church from home and kept our social distance but y’all, can I just say, no amount of social distance should keep you from sharing this amazing melt in your mouth recipe with your family and friends.
Speaking of family, I am happy to have had my great grandmothers loaf pans handed down to me. Everytime I use them I can’t help but wonder what all she made with these pans. All the time and love that was poured into them. and oh my I bet it was delicious!
It is a dream of mine to create a collection of hand written recipes to keep in a binder and hand down to my children one day. It is for that very reason that I created a FREE RECIPE CARD PRINTABLE for you to preserve your recipes with.
There really is nothing more special than handing down a personalized, hand written, tried and true recipe for generations to enjoy!
