HOW TO MAKE OLD-FASHIONED SWEET BREAD

old-fashioned-sweet-bread2This kind of sweet bread is a recipe your grandparents may have made years ago.  It is a light sweet bread made with butter, sugar and flour almost like cake.  You can frost it, sprinkle with powdered sugar or just eat it with butter.  This bread is wonderful right out of the oven for breakfast with coffee or as a snack anytime.  Children love the sweetness.  You could add raisins, nuts or even fruit to the recipe but we love it like the recipe says below.  I think you are going to really like this bread!

    This is really good baked in a black cast iron skillet, melt about 1/2 stick of margarine in the hot skillet then pour into the hot skillet and bake approximately 30 min. or until done.

  2. This makes a good snacking treat as is, and I’m looking forward to making it the next time with raisins and pecan chips. A very easy and versatile recipe. Thank you!

    I would love to print this and other recipes, but on my page there is no “print” icon and no green square .There are no twitter and FB icons either until I click on “Comment”. Suggestions?

    • The Southern Lady says:

      There should be a Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest icon along with a green printer icon that has a picture of a little printer in the square. They are right above where it says: Start your own blog in less than 20 minutes at the bottom of each page. If you cannot see them, you may need to refresh you browser or it must be something with your computer. We have checked with our tech people and they have assured us the icons are at the bottom of every page on the site.

    • I don’t see a green square or a print icon at the bottom of the page and refresh does not work either. So I right click my mouse and choose print that works fine. Thank you for your wonderful recipes.

  4. This looks like it would make a pretty good base for cinnamon rolls or breakfast pastries with very little tweaking of the recipe…

We enjoy your comments but due to the large volume we must delete comments often. We try to do this weekly and sometimes more often. Positive comments about a recipe you tried and loved are always welcome. Thank you so much for commenting here.
