This recipe comes from your grandfather’s father’s 3rd wife, Jessie Evans Smith, aka “Grandmother Aunt Jessie.” Grandmother Roberta gave me this recipe. This is a picture of Jessie Evans with your great-grandfather Joseph Fielding Smith. This is a yummy bread recipe and it only takes 90 minutes from start to finish!
