Directions:
Combine yeast cake, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 cup milk, and let stand while assembling other ingredients. Melt 1 cube margarine or butter in saucepan. Set aside for last. Beat 2 eggs. Add to yeast mixture. Add 1 teaspoon salt. Add 1-3/4 cups flour. Beat mixture with mixer until smooth. Add other 2 cups flour. Stir with spoon. Lastly add melted butter which has cooled some. Never add hot to dough. Stir until blended. I [Grandma] usually use my hand to mix. Cover and let stand 1/2 day or till double. Divide into 3 parts. Roll out first part and make 16 pie shaped sections. Do the same with the second part. Roll each from long end to make roll. Put on greased sheet. Let rise 1/2 day or till double. Bake 10 minutes at 375F.

I [Grandma] then use the last of the 3 parts of egg rolls for sweet rolls. Roll out until about 1/4" thick. Spread with butter or margarine (almost 1 cube). Sprinkle almost 1 cup brown sugar on the butter, sprinkle with cinnamon. Roll in one big roll and slice across roll 3/4" thick. Place in buttered pan. Usually makes about 15 sweet rolls and 30 regular rolls. Let rise till double (3 hrs or so). Bake 375F for 15-20 minutes.

Personal Notes:
From age 10 to 18 I lived in Pasadena, CA, a couple dozen miles from my maternal grandparents, Albert & Margaret Chavannes, who lived in Glendale. On special occasions we would have dinner at their house. The treat for all five of us Flynn children was Grandma's Sweet Rolls. We not only ate the rolls, we secretly licked the pan if we could find it and the serving utensils after dinner was over! :-) Mmm, sticky goodness!
