    I'm a true blue Bermudian and used to make this all the time and decided to whip up a batch as I haven't made it in awhile...I needed a little reminder on the proportions of the ingredients and ended up here! I did it the way my mom used to by adding a little cornmeal to the mix. I also rub butter into the dry mixture-it gives the bread more taste and makes it really moist. I also use heavy cream instead of regular milk which also makes the bread more moist and tastier.<br/><br/>Someone here said they remove the salt because they like sweetness...I think it's important to add salt for flavour-it just adds a little something and doesn't make the mixture salty at all. If one likes sweetness, maybe add more sugar but it's important to add the salt!<br/><br/>This johnny bread is so good...we like to eat it with sharp cheddar cheese-deelish!

    These are so good. I made them for lunch today. It was a spur of the moment decision. So easy to make. I used 2/3 whole wheat flour. I made them in a cast iron skillet and ate them with butter, raspberry preserves and coffee.My kids inhaled them :) I will make them many times more. Thanks for posting. Made for zwt5.

    This is delicious. With butter or without. We prefer them without butter. I omitted the salt. I like the sweetness. I used skim milk. Thanks Lazy Gourmet :) Made for the Saucy Senoritas of ZWT5

<p>Hey all! I am a weekend cook....hence the lazy gourmet title.</p> <p><br />I'm a veterinary technician with an animal shelter in Chicago.&nbsp; I take care of approximately 150 cats and 20 dogs on any one day in the rehabilitation unit.&nbsp; It's a good feeling job. <br /><br />I've been married to a keeper who I just celebrated my 13th anniversary with. We have our furry children - right now seven cats, two rabbits and two guinea pigs, along with my current foster dog who is recovering from a stint at a puppy mill (BOO HISS PUPPY MILLS). <br /><br />So enjoy my recipes! <br /><br />lazy</p> <p><a href=http://i424.photobucket.com/albums/pp330/LadyBlueNose/Cookbook%20Swap%20Designs/AZPCookbook2a-1.jpg target=_blank>http://i424.photobucket.com/albums/pp330/LadyBlueNose/Cookbook%20Swap%20Designs/AZPCookbook2a-1.jpg</a><a href=http://i424.photobucket.com/albums/pp330/LadyBlueNose/Cookbook%20Swap%20Designs/AZPCookbook2a-1.jpg><span class=smpt><br /><br /></span><br /></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/calendar%20clips/spices2.jpg alt= width=262 height=186 /><br /><br /><a href=http://s224.photobucket.com/albums/dd235/MidwestMaven/?action=view&amp;current=spoiledpetswap09partbanner.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd235/MidwestMaven/spoiledpetswap09partbanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i490.photobucket.com/albums/rr266/Acadia/Banners/WineSwapBanner2009-1.jpg alt= /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/cookbookZWT.jpg border=0 alt=I am alw /> <br /><img src=http://home.insightbb.com/~webdesign5/Logo1a.jpeg alt= /> <br /><img src=http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r271/copperhorse58/Birthday%20and%20Celebration%20Images/spicesswap_amtag1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/KBparticipation.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/CookbookParticipation2.jpg alt= /></a></p> <p><img src=http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif alt= /></p> <p><br /><img src=http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg alt= /></p>
