Coffee Can Breakfast Bread
By: Marie - Brandon, FL - Recipe Contest 2015
I love old fashioned, nostalgic recipes. The recipes handed down from your grandmother. And I also love updating them with special twists and ingredients. Coffee cans are hard to come by now, but if you can find them I love the perfectly round slices it makes. Everyone will fight over the crunchy top layer! This recipe also works beautifully in a loaf pan.
