"One of my favorite recipes made by my grandmother and handed down to me. My Granny made this bread as a sweet treat, but it was great for breakfast." — Jshelton

1 1/4 cups
1 2/3 cups
sifted self-rising flour
okay. haven't had a chance to actually taste it yet but i just finished glazing the bread. a few little annoyances i had with the recipe were: i could not get the butter and brown sugar to actually turn into a glaze as written so I added another tsp of butter; still no glaze action. then I added a small amount of water the pow! we have glaze. I stirred vigorously for about a minute until it started to caramelize, then poured it over the bread and added the pecan to the top. thought it would make it more visually attractive and it did.
I made muffins instead of bread and it was amazing they lasted two days. I also added just a dash of ginger, put walnuts and brown sugar(not melted) on top instead of the inside.
OK so I made this but made muffins rather than a loaf.
I made a few changes, I only used 1 cup of white sugar (we don't like things too sweet in our house)and it was plenty sweet enough but think I'll use half a cup of white and half a cup of brown sugar next time.
I also didn't add any pecans or make the topping.
I reduced the cooking time slightly, the muffins took about 20 mins at 375.
I made 24 muffins but they were pretty small so next time I think I'll probably do 16 - 18 larger muffins.
Everyone in my family loved them (especially the kids - even the picky one).
I only gave it 4 stars as I found cooking the potato a little time consuming - I will peel and boil next time as this only takes about 20mins as opposed to 1 hour in the oven and then having to wait for it to cool enough to peel.
I WILL be making this again.
My kids loved this!!!!
This was really good. I didn't do the glaze and pecan topping. I bet that would be great though.
