“This is a very old recipe from a very old and wonderful Grange Cookbook from some of the best cooks and bakers in Pennsylvania. My Grandmother was a fantastic baker, but I like this recipe even more than hers----sorry Grandma... The buttermilk adds such richness. My family loves this toasted for breakfast.”
