“This is an adaptation of a recipe from JoAnna Lund's "A Potful of Recipes". I could never make it work quite right in the crockpot, so made some changes and make it in the oven. You can make it in a regular loaf pan, small loaf pans OR in 6 muffin cups (you will need to adjust the time for smaller pans and muffin cups). I generally make a triple batch and freeze some as it freezes well - I bake first then freeze so it's easy to have dinner on the table quickly.”
