Dilly Casserole Bread

I got this recipe from a church cookbook years ago and I've used it ever since. I've added a few touches of my own to it. This bread is the favorite of our grandchildren, and we always take some when we go to visit them.

    I love this bread. My mom made it when I was young and I tried this recipe and it tastes just like hers. I inherited her recipe boxes but this recipe wasnt there so I am glad i found this one.
