I am from Newfoundland. This bread does recipe does to resemble any thing like what was passed down to me from my mom and from my grandmother and so on. We never use milk. We also used vegetable shorting with the margin. You still get bread with this recipe but is dense and not authentic to 1800's ingreadents.
Hi All, ok...attempted this recipe 2 times....awesome tasting bread...but dense...not light and fluffy like my mom's .... don't know what I'm doing wrong...I knead and knead and knead, as I my mom does...but it doesn't rise in the hour to double in size...nor does it rise in the pan...pleases I welcome ideas ..... Thanks
Mmmm. Tastes just like I remember the bread from my childhood tasting. I'm reminded of how wonderful it was to come home from school to a house filled with the smell of bread and the counters lined off. I'm glad I found this recipe for 2 loaves because my mom's makes about 12 and it's not so much a recipe as it is a bag of this and a handful of that. lol Great recipe! Spot on! We make the best everything here in Newfoundland although I may be a little bias!
