From the 30-year-old handwritten index card of my grandmother, this recipe has been passed down through our family over the years. This light and airy white bread, with a butter-glazed crust, is almost fool-proof. Great for sandwiches, toast, or bread pudding, Rosebud's Butter-Topped White Bread is a sentimental treat from my family to yours.
