Yankee Brown Bread

This is another recipe that I don’t remember partaking of, but I am not surprised to find dates in the recipe. Grammy loved dates.

This recipe was found in a book called Galley Finale: A Collection of Mariner Soups, Sloops, and Other Incredible Edibles which was put out by The Presbyterian Church of Fair Oaks, Ca in 1978.
