I like to keep a baked batch of these extra-large sweet rolls in the freezer to surprise my family on weekends. To reheat, thaw in the refrigerator overnight, wrap in foil and bake at 350° for 20 to 30 minutes or until heated through.
I've been making this bread for many years. It smells so good in the oven and tastes even better. I make bread almost every Saturday, and it doesn't stay around long with our sons home from college in the summer.
Meet the Cook: As the cook for our local volunteer fire department, I'm a nonstop recipe clipper. This one's been a constant in my file for years. It's great for grabbing and going, and a good lunch dish, too.
Here on our farm, my husband - who's also a teacher - and I have cattle and hogs plus one chicken who furnishes many of our eggs. We are the parents of a 6-year-old daughter.

My family waits expectantly for me to bake this beautiful sweet bread every year at this time. The tempting aroma as it's baking fills the kitchen and makes everybody eager for a thick slice of this yummy treat. —Linda Eager, Harlan, Indiana
This recipe was given to me by my mother-in-law, who received it from her mother! It was a standard treat in their family, made nearly every week. Now I make this dish for my own family for special occasions.
