I thought I would write to you and tell you about a wonderful recipe book we have, as well as a recipe for St. Elizabeth Ann Seton which my family enjoys. The cookbook is Building the Family Cookbook by Suzanne Fowler. Here is the recipe:
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Colonial Brown Bread
Oven Temp: 350
need a greased 9 X 5 loaf pan
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 c. + 3 T flour
1 c. brown sugar, packed
2 t. baking soda
2 c. buttermilk
Mix all dry ingredients. Slowly add the buttermilk, stirring until well blended. Pour into a greased 9 X 5 loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
Turn pan at once and cool on a wire rack. The bread may be eaten warm. Turn the bread on the side for easier slicing.
Variations: I use all whole wheat flour and turbinado sugar.
Cautions: Don't use any other type of flour. I used whole wheat pastry flour once and it didn't turn out near as good. Edible but not great! Pin It
