“I have not yet tried this, but it is from an overdue library book (From Our Mothers' Kitchens) and I want to return the book tomorrow, so need to get the recipes I want to try copied down, pronto. This bread sounds easy, and has a unique baking method (it goes into a cold oven). I think it would go very well with soup or stew.”
