“My family absolutely loves when I make this! It looks complicated, but it's really not. I got this out of a Paula Deen magazine. Just a few hints...I use flexible cookware when I bake and the first time I made this I had to use 3 regular sized loaf pans. The next time I used two flexible bunt pans it turned out great! I couldn't find one on here that used brown sugar in place of white. So I thought I would share this one. I don't know how many servings this makes, all I know is that it will feed my brood and then some. **Note: I have substituted Splenda Brown Sugar and light sour cream as well; it still turns out fantastic! Please let me know what you think!”
