My mother made this often when I was growing up. Now I make it for my husband and two girls. The slightly tangy glaze complements the moist bread.

"This is definitely a keeper. Many of my customers request this bread. The only change I made to the original recipe is that I use orange yogurt instead of plain. It comes out nice and tall, slices well and has a wonderful flavor. Will make this for years to come."
