Sugar, cinnamon, flour, yeast, butter and did I say sugar. These are some of the ingredients that go into making my cinnamon buns, the cinnamon buns I've been making ever since I first had them many years ago. There is something about the yeasty smell of those buns baking that reminds me of fall and gooey, messy bits of goodness.

What is it about the smell of hot bread coming out of the oven that warms the cockles of my heart? In my version of heaven, the streets wouldn't be paved with gold, but rather lined with rows and rows of fresh hot bread of all different types and flavours. This Sunday I'm sharing another one of my favourites with you all - Enjoy!

Grandma Ruby has 70 years of bread-making experience under her belt. She first taught me to make this basic white bread when I was only 10 years old. Her health has taken a turn for the worse, and it hurts because I can’t go to see her right now. So instead I bake – her favourite white bread.

This is a delicious egg bread that is so soft and chewy, it reminds me a of a bread that Grandma Ruby used to make all the time. She used lots and lots of butter to keep her bread moist and chewy. While I'm still working on perfecting her recipe I keep making lots of challah bread instead.
