  • About

The great advantage of this bread is that it improves with a day or so of aging. It is even better toasted or warmed and then spread with butter or sour cream.


  • 8 ounces (2 sticks) soft sweet butter
  • cups firmly packed light brown sugar


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Butter the sides and bottom of the loaf pan.

Put the butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer. Using the paddle attachment, beat on medium speed until light and creamy. Add the eggs 2 at a time, mixing well after each addition.
