"This is an old standby on my Thanksgiving table and on my mother's. It was her Aunt Jane who started it. I like to eat it plain, sliced thin, but I know others claim it's delicious with a little bit of butter or cream cheese on top."

I just made this bread - it's amazing! I cut the recipe in half because I only own 1 loaf pan. Minor alterations - used 1/4 cup unbleached white and 1/4 whole wheat pastry flour (since I halved the recipe). I also used light soymilk in place of the milk. I will be making this A LOT.

This was actually my 1st attempt at making bread ever (I am new to cooking). Everyone thought I was crazy to take on the task of making bread. But, it was VERY easy to make, and provided me with 2 loaves of sweet and dense brown bread. It's wonderful!
