Hobo Bread Recipe

I LOVE this bread! My family has been making this Hobo Bread recipe since my Great Grandmothers time. I have no idea what the original source was or even why it’s called Hobo Bread. My mom told me that my Great Grandma used to feed the hobo’s so who knows… I normally make this in regular sized loaf pans but mini loaves are good for gifts too! If I am not careful I can polish off one of these mini loaves by myself very quickly.
