    Cookin'withGas's Note:

    I found this recipe in The Great Victorian Cookbook by John Midgley, published in 1995...It's a fascinating cookbook about Victorian era cooking. I particularly want to try making this bread someday and thought it best to place here for safekeeping!

      I've made this recipe 5 times. The temperatures listed were way too hot for my oven and the first two loaves burned within 15 minutes. On the 3rd loaf I reduced the temperature to 350° and the loaf was perfect after 15minutes of baking - had I put it in for the additional 20minutes it surely would have burned. I've since made the bread twice more using higher fat milks and only cooking it for the initial 15-20minutes; the bread has been perfect every time. =)
