Well hi! Remember when I mentioned my mom’s delicious brown bread?? Well, with the necessary ingredients, some idle time at home, and some hungry bellies to feed, I decided I would try my hand at it. Guess what?! You can too. :)
First things first, you need:
A mug of warm green tea.
Your (my) grandmother’s recipe.
….more talented than you…(and this officially ends the rhyming segment of this post).
Here’s what else you need:
3 cups of sour milk or buttermilk
2 cups of whole wheat flour
2 cups of white flour
1 cup of molasses
3/4 cup of sugar
1/2-3/4 cup raisins
2 teas. salt
2 teas. baking soda (or 6 teas. baking powder if that’s all you can find)
2 loaf pans, greased
Here’s how its done:
Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Place 3 cups of milk and 3 tbsp of vinegar in a separate bowl. Stir and place somewhere a bit warm – like on top of the heating oven! It will start to curdle in no time.
Pour into the greased loaf pans and bake away for an hour or until finished. I neglected to do this, but to keep the bread super moist (hate that word!) fill a pan with some water and place it in the oven as well.
Let me know if you guys try this! While I recommend sharing, if you’re so inclined to stow it away where only you know about it (who me?) it freezes superbly (or rather, defrosts superbly).
