      Made these to take as pull-apart loaves for a neighborhood get-together & because I can't remember the last time I made a braided bread! I personally enjoyed this sweet bread, & that fact that both loaves disappeared rather quickly points to them being VERY, VERY NICE, indeed! Thanks for sharing!
