Personal Notes:
*The recipe calls for the pan to be oiled & floured but I just use the cooking spray (the one with flour if I have it, but it's not necessary) & I've never had it stick.

I've served this bread as a dessert or as a breakfast item & it's always a hit. I usually use both choc. chips & nuts (about a cup of each). I've also recently began sprinkling the top with a cinnamon-sugar mixture before baking to give the top crust added flavor.

This recipe came from a Pennsylvania Dutch cookbook that my mom owns.
