This is posted by request. It is made in coffee cans (or regular bread pans if desired). It is baked in cans to give it the unique shape. It came from a cookbook I've had since 1975. Time to rise in not in prep time.
These recipes were in my local paper a few weeks ago and looked to be really good. I'm afraid that I did not keep the name of the person sending this in to the paper. White Bread Baked in a Coffee Can You will need 1 pound coffee cans these breads.
This is an outdoor recipe over a fire pit in the ground, campfire. You must have a metal 2# coffee can and foil. I mix the dry ingredients in a ziplock bag. Then I dump in the can. (Do they have coffee in metal cans any more?)
It's fun to try different things in the kitchen for me. I love to experiment. This recipe is one of those kind-of recipes. This bread is mixed then placed in a coffee can where it rises and bakes. Pretty cool, if you ask me, and a great way to turn trash into something useful. And the bread ain't bad either!
One of my mom's recipes or actually I thought it was but she told me recently she got it from my grandmother. And she was the one who started making it in coffee cans. I'm a big fan of making bread in coffee cans, so if you still get the metal cans you better start saving them. I've kept the same ones for years. One thing about this bread it seems like it takes every spice in the cabinet, but it is well worth it. Freezes well, too.
