This delicious yeast bread brings back great memories. Baking them in the old coffee cans just like grandma used to, a dollop of butter or strawberry jam mmm... Good!!



Coat inside of each coffee can with small amount of oil. 

Mix 2 cups flour with yeast.  Stir water, milk, butter, sugar and salt over low heat until butter melts.  Cool to 110°-115°F, add to flour and yeast.  Stir in remaining flour and eggs.  Dough will be stiff.  Knead on floured surface until dough is smooth and elastic.  Divide dough in half; place half in each can.  Cover with plastic tops.  Let rise in warm place until dough reaches about 1- inch from top.  Remove plastic and bake in preheated 375°F oven for about 35 minutes 




OPTIONAL: When finished cooking, brush outside of loaf with honey and sprinkle with slivered almonds.
