Probably like most grandma recipes, it was hard to get Grandma pinned down to write a recipe since it was all about throwing things in here and there. Seems like everyone has a different recipe for all our favorite foods that she would make. Rosaleen came up with this bread recipe using the measuring cups and spoons that grandma used and I've had sucess with the couple of times that I've made it. Some of us remember her putting a few cups of white flour in her bread too, but it's up to you. This bread is better toasted and all of us grandkids LOVED the Old English cheese spread on top. Peanut butter and jelly/ honey was also a favorite.
