I call this The Kaznelson Bread because it is the bread my grandmother used to make, and the one my mother makes on a regular basis. My great-grandmother probably made it as well. It is the first time it is written down as this one is passed from generation to generation through being together in the kitchen while it is being prepared. This bread can be a side dish or a whole meal with a couple of salads next to it. As always, I believe in personal taste and therefore you can pretty much fill the bread up with what you like – savory or sweet.
