Recipe by Toby Jermain

I can't remember where I got this recipe, but it makes a pretty good tasting bread. Cooking time includes rising time.

This wasn't a batter bread at all. I ended up having to knead this by hand....my dough hook wouldn't even take up the dough for me. So, why give it as many as 4 stars? Because it tastes great and was pretty darned easy. It's a low rising loaf, might need to risings. However, I made it today for our potluck lunch and people raved about it. A good hearty bread for sandwiches.

  2. Mix in remaining ingredients, and beat well until batter is smooth and elastic.
  3. Pour batter into a well greased 2 pound coffee can or a 2 quart casserole, and let rise for 1 hour.
  4. Bake in a preheated 350 degF oven for about 35-40 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped (190 degF internal temperature on an instant reading thermometer).
