A Recipe for Brown Bread

Social Corner Friends: The good neighbor and I have long talked of writing the Social Corner, but weeks have been passed and neither has written. One seems to be waiting for the other. This is such a nice day I want to do something, so will write to you all. I know quite a number of the writers, and also know some of their pen names. I have always known Aunt Mary and would like to meet her once more. As we live so far away from each other we do not meet very often, but I am willing to meet her half way, so if I can be one of you we may meet again. I am a would-be farmer, so will send my recipe for brown bread.

Brown Bread

  • 1 egg
  • 1 small cup sugar
  • 3 cups graham flour
  • 3 cups buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Bake in an aluminum pan with an aluminum cover. It makes a nice loaf with no crust. Hope the Social Corner friends will try this recipe. This is not my name but the name my friends call me.
