Yeast Bread – from My Mother’s CookBook

I have this old cookbook my mother created. She told me that this was a school project for Home Ec. I want to capture the recipes contained in the cookbook before they are lost for ever. I have captured the original recipe in her hand writing.

The original recipes don’t provide complete instructions. I’ve interpreted what I could. I hope to recreate the recipe in the near future. I will post updates to the recipe after I’ve had a chance to recreate it.
