This is a family recipe handed down since the 1750s! It originates from Kaskaskia, a town in Illinois. It is a very simple and economical recipe that does not require milk or eggs. Even those with no history at baking bread may find this recipe incredible easy to make. It is a great beginner bread! For the sake of modern homes we will be using active, dry yeast.
