Buttermilk Bread Recipe

I love this Buttermilk Bread Recipe!  My great aunt taught me how to make this bread years ago.  This is my go to bread for BLT, Bread cubes, and Thanksgiving dressing.  The bread has a firm texture and holds up well for sandwiches.  It is not a sweet bread like some roll recipes, but can be made into dinner rolls.  You can also add grains to the bread to make it multi-grain.   You will love this bread and your family will too.  Plan on about three  hours to make this bread, although you are not in the kitchen the total 3 hours, but you will need to stay at home for three hours for rising and baking time.
