@Regrann from @amhistorymuseum - This is a bread maker from around 1906. We aren't sure what you do on the weekends, but one of our favorite hobbies is trying out old recipes. 🥖🍞🥐 We tried out "Entire Wheat Bread" from the 1911 edition of the 1896 Fannie Farmer's "Boston Cooking-School Cookbook," one of the best-selling cookbooks of all time because it was "reliable, comprehensive, and easy-to-follow." But even with that ringing endorsement, it wasn't easy! ✨ Image 2: Our ingredients, milk, stone-ground (whole wheat) flour, yeast dissolved in water, sugar, and salt. 🥛🥄 Image 3: Mmmmm our loaf! 🏆 Image 4: A young woman removes a loaf of bread from her oven, around 1909. Before temperature dials became standard in the 1920s, bakers used experience to judge temperature.
