The tantalizing aroma of this golden loaf baking always draws people into my mother's kitchen. With its circular shape, it's a pretty bread, too. I've never seen it last more than 2 hours once it's out of the oven! — Jeanne Voss, Anaheim Hills, California

"I'm going to make this today. I'll substitute the dry yeast (don't have any) with fresh active yeast. Hope it turns out well..."

"Very tasty! Mine started browning way too fast, so I just covered it with aluminum foil. Thanks for sharing!!"

"I have been making this family favorite for years. It is easy and delicious, makes fantastic toast. I prefer to bake it in two loaf pans so that it is easier to slice."

"I was worried as my first rise wasn't very pronounced, but I went ahead with it and gave it additional time on the 2nd. It baked quickly and tastes great. flaky crusty. Great with regular butter. I'd definitely try again and use fresher yeast just in case that was my problem!"

"Pretty good bread. With it being a slightly sweet bread, we liked it better with regular butter more than the honey butter."

"Love this bread! The directions were a little confusing, and for some reason the top of the bread got really brown but the middle didn't cook completely, but I think this was my own fault because I put it on a really high rack in the oven. But this bread is definitely now one of my absolute favorites! It's delicious! I didn't even make the honey butter, the bread tastes fantastic even without it! Definitely recommend this recipe!"
