“This is a family favorite, it has been a tradition for the holidays and I have to make it every year, everyone loves it. (Even if I am not going to be there, I still have to make it and send it with someone) There are some very simular recipes here and I have tried some but I still go back to this one and this is the one I will continue to use. This is a yeast batter bread so no kneading is required, very easy to make and very delicious.”
