One of my mom's recipes or actually I thought it was but she told me recently she got it from my grandmother. And she was the one who started making it in coffee cans. I'm a big fan of making bread in coffee cans, so if you still get the metal cans you better start saving them. I've kept the same ones for years. One thing about this bread it seems like it takes every spice in the cabinet, but it is well worth it. Freezes well, too.
