Baking this bread in coffee cans lends to its interesting shape. At Christmas, I often make gift boxes for friends and family featuring this bread and various spreads.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 21, 2012

I have baked this recipe twice using 4 15oz coffee cans. Following the directions exactly and baking for 75 minutes I have 4 beautiful traditional loaves to slice for covered dish dinners or home consumption. Absolutely delicious.
