I baked bread

I was craving fresh out of the oven bread. I made my mom’s bread recipe over the weekend. Mom made it all the time when we lived in Africa. Butter came in metal tins and once we used it up, Mom put the bread dough in the tins for baking. Many times we ate nothing but fresh hot bread with butter and jam for dinner. One of my favorite memories.
