NotesThis is my late grandmother's recipe. She would make this every summer when we visited the cottage in Upper Michigan. We would have it for breakfast with butter and her raspberry preserves that she canned every summer, and again as ham and cheese sandwiches for lunch. I made this a few weekends ago myself. The recipe card is from her box that my mother inherited when my grandmother passed away earlier this year.
This makes a dense, healthy, slightly sweet wheat bread.
