    This is one of the best, and not hard to make breads. I make it often for family reunions and gatherings. Everyone loves it, good also toasted with butter. Always a hit.

    I lost an old recipe from your magazine, where a lady remembered her mom making BB Bread for every occasion. Is this that old recipe? It seems that baking up to 80 minutes seems excessive, is that an error?
