Greenfield Village "Hobo Bread"
By Joann Wisniewski hojewiz
A thoroughly American bread, orriginating during the Great Depression. This bread is baked in tin cans (just like the hoboes did it back in the day). It's moist and delicious and very easy. It's no wonder that it's a hit to all who visit Greenfield Village in Dearborn Michigan.
Grease and flour 3 or 4 empty and clean soup cans.
Add brandy and let cool.
In large bowl mix together butter, milk, vanilla, egg and the sugars.
Add the raising or currants and all the liquid.
Bake for 40 minute to an hour.
Cool 5 minutes in cans before removing to a rack to cool completely.
