Recipe by bmxmama

This recipe is a recipe my mom got years ago from a friend of hers. I just found the recipe after searching for it for months on end and I just about tripped over it. I hope you enjoy it as much as we have over the years. *All cooking times are approximate.*

I added both the optional pepper and cheese. It is a good bread and a recipe I think I will have fun playing with . I had to knead in an extra 1/2 -3/4 of a cup of flour. It is very heavy and dense and just a little to yeasty tasting for us. I do think it will be great toasted for breakfast. It was my first time making a bread this way. Made for PAC Fall 2009.
