Teddy Bear Bread is a recipe that’s been in my recipe box for a very, very long time. Probably 40 years. The first time I made it, I was in middle school. My best friend, Stacy, and I had to make a meal for our Spanish class. We chose Paella and this bread. I’ll never forget making it because it took us a long time. You have to let it rise two times for an hour each time, so by the time the bread was finished, it was very late at night and we were completely slap happy! I remember lots of giggling going on. I’m talking about the kind of laughter where you can’t stop and no sound comes out. Good times!
