About this recipe: This recipe has been passed down through eight generations of my family. It came to me on my 16th birthday as a gift of heritage and wisdom from my grandmother and I have enjoyed baking this recipe once a week for the past 5 years. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. This is a really nice moist tea loaf and can be served hot or cold. Originally the recipe made 23 loaves but my grandmother and me have managed to work it for three.
