Serve plain or with cool whip. Sprinkle just before serving with powdered sugar.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
For dietary reasons I use 2 C sugar and 1 C sugar alternative ( Splenda). I also use slightly lesser amount of salt. It does not seem to alter texture of the bread. We like it best toasted for breakfast with cream cheese.
