Personal Notes:
The smell of freshly baked bread made either by Betty or her mother, Margaret, often filled the Kloss family home. I recall that Mom (Betty) pinned Grandma Hatmaker down one day to write this recipe. Grandma never measured her ingredients . Mom measure it before she put it in the bread so that future generations could have her recipe. So here it is!
