I needed a quick recipe and pulled this one up from my recipe files. To my surprise, it was fantastic. I urge everyone to try it.
i've got a bit of a sweet tooth, and i was a little disappointed that these weren't sweeter. more of a bread, less of a cookie bar. Very easy though, and pretty good.
I'm a sugar and sweets lover, and it's the kind of snacks I like. Easy to fix, not that much dishwashing (just one pan), and keeps well. Try it, I'm almost sure you'll like it.
Very easy to make. They taste good. Excellent recipe to make when you need something quick.
These are easy to make and surprisingly yummy. When they first came out of the oven I thought they were only kind of chewy. Ten minutes later I could see why they were considered "chew" bread. If you love brown sugar, you'll love these.
My husband and I just moved South from Ohio, and I stumbled across chew bread at a local cafe/ bakery... having never heard of it before, I decided to try it out, and enjoyed it so much that I searched for this recipe. It was somewhat messy, and a little bit too sweet, but its a new Southern treat for us to enjoy.
Bread is definitely chewy. I goofed when measuring brown sugar, which comes in a 2 lb bag. Instead of using 1 pound (2 cups), I used 1 cup - really made a difference. Next time I'll use 2 cups from the 2 lb bag. NOTE: rather than cook sugar and eggs in heavy saucepan, I used double boiler - no chance of burning mix if you don't stir all the time. P.S. bread is filling.
LOVE this recipe just hits the right spot the only thing I changed was added a stick of butter :) and YUM YUM YUM
