Brown Bread

This is an old recipe that was given to me by a friend who got the recipe from her mother who was given the recipe from a friend.

The lady that gave me the recipe said it was a very nice bread for breakfast or with tea and recommended that I try it.  The recipe was handwritten on a beautiful vintage recipe card and it was well worn on the edges.  I photocopied it so I lost the colour and gold detailing but it was so pretty I didn’t want to just copy our the recipe.  I hope you are able to read the recipe.

This is the soured milk, which was basically 2 cups of milk with 2 Tbsps vinegar added.  To this I added 2tsp of baking soda, you can see how it bubbled in the second photo

I had a little trouble finding the graham four but then I found this one.

Mix the dry ingredients together, little hands are helpful for this

Pour in the wet ingredients and stir.  A vintage recipe calls for a vintage mixer!

Place into a greased loaf and and bake at 325F for about one hour.

Cool on a wire rack

It turned out nice and evenly browned, even the bottom

It is really nice served warm with a little butter.

As the recipe card says if too warm it doesn’t cut well.  But it does freeze like anything but takes hours to thaw!
