St.Johns Bread

I'm looking for the recipe for St.Johns Bread. Affectionally refered to as Johney Bread. Its from St Johns University in St.Cloud,Minnesota. Ive tried various sources with no luck.

Johnny bread is a quick bread that is for all intents and purposes, a corn bread.

Though that's what I call cornbread. This is bread made by the monks/priests and I bet it was a great WW bread-they always make great bread! Why don't you contact the university and see if they will share the recipe?

"Saint John's University has produced its own coarse-grained bread, Johnnie Bread, since 1856 and used the proceeds to fund projects such as the Abbey Church."

According to Wikipedia.

You can even have either the bread or a mix sent to you. Maybe you can reverse engineer a recipe.

Take a look at page 2 of the January 15, 1948 issue of the student newspaper, "The Record".
