Judy, a dear friend and neighbor, gave me a deliciously soft loaf of this bread just last week. It was the softest (quick) bread I'd ever felt. Then I tasted it, oh my, it was so delicious!!
She tells me that this recipe is probably about 50 years old and maybe even older. She has been making this bread at Christmastime for about the same number of years and it's always been a hit.
Judy was gracious enough to share the recipe with us. Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
1-box of Butter Pecan cake mix ( Butterbrickle cake mix no longer in stores)
