Who doesn't love a slice of warm home-baked bread? It fills any house with a warm feeling! I found this recipe in All About Home Baking, which was published by General Foods Kitchens back in 1960. It is easy, and so far has proven to be fool-proof!
Special thanks to Melissa and Sean, for if they hadn't put this book in their Discard pile, I might have never found this recipe!
According to page 1 of the book: Baking is an art - you are the artist!
