The mother of a high school friend would make 13 of these lightly sweet loaves at a time! I make this bread year-round, but my family insists it's a "must" for the holidays.

Directions

  5. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cover loosely with foil if top browns too quickly. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 3 loaves (12 wedges each).

@Anonymousforever, this recipe is not misleading, perhaps you missed a step- the recipe clearly states, "add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough"

So, in the beginning you will use 3 c flour, then you will add more to achieve desired consistency. (it will vary depending on your flour type, water type, etc.)

I do hope you try this recipe & review the wonderful outcome! :)

This recipe is misleading! In the ingredients it states, "7 to 7 1/2 cup of flour;" yet in the directions it states, "combine 3 cups flour." So, which is it?
