When I make this bread, I almost always have to bake two loaves so that everyone gets a taste! It's especially good in the winter. In fact, last year when we went to a Christmas buffet at my husband's aunt's house—with a hearty soup as the main course—I took a Reuben Loaf along. It looks so pretty sliced and arranged on a platter, too. My husband and I are crop farmers with three young children. Cooking—especially baking—is one of the ways I relax, and I also enjoy sewing.
