"This bread is steamed in cans. My Gram saved small coffee cans for this. Gram didn't have a steamer so she used a tin pie plate with holes in it turned upside down in a large covered pot with 4 inches of water." — RAINVILLE

excellent! I cut the recipe in half & used 2 cranberry sauce cans since there are only 2 of us..... covered each can with foil & secured with an elastic & steamed for 55 mins..... perfect! Don't forget to grease the cans. thanks, Michele
The flavor was good, but it took much longer for the bread to cook than expected (30+ minutes longer). However the flavor was very good.
This is very much like my grandmothers recipe- and we do it the same way, in cans, set in a large stock pot.
The BEST thing to eat with baked beans!

Excellent recipe, moist and delicious! I added a cup of raisins to mine. Fantastic with hot dogs and baked beans as a Saturday night meal!
My kids loved this bread and it is a general family favourite!
This turned out great. I was shocked when my 13 yr old asked where the leftovers were the next day. I did half the recipe and used 2 chicken broth cans. I also used a veggie steamer until set (about 50 minutes). AWESOME with Baked Beans. I will definitely make this again.
Just like on the farm, fast easy and tasty will agree best with baked beans!
I made this bread today and it was great! I searched for this recipe because my father-in-law been talking about it and how he would like to have it again. Growing up we could purchase it at any store, not today. Thanks
