Grandma’s Country White Bread


My grandmother made homemade bread every Saturday morning on her cast iron stove, wood … which was her wedding present. I loved her fresh baked bread and rolls! ♥

My grandmother made the best bread. It was a treat. She was from Poland! And lived with us. Since I was born. She baked several loaves of bread and, when cooled, stored them in a tin can lined with a bag of flour, leaving out a loaf for the hungry children !!

It looks so delicious you can almost smell the aroma ♥♥
