The Hour Magazine Cookbook

 This recipe is from the classic cookbook titled The Hour Magazine Cookbook (Gary Collins, Putnam, 1985).

The subtitle for this cookbook is "The most popular recipes from America's most informative television show." At the time, Hour Magazine hosted by Gary Collins was the most popular daytime magazine-format show on television.

The Hour Magazine Cookbook only has a few breakfast recipes, but it's worth a look for the many other recipes (many of an exotic nature) that were presented on the program.

Gary Collins' intro for this recipe in The Hour Magazine Cookbook reads as follows: "I knew about Tim Reid from WKRP In Cincinnati and about his current role on Simon & Simon, but I didn't know that Tim is a fitness freak with an affinity for health foods. Here he offers us a quick and healthy molasses bread!" TV fans know Tim Reid best as the character DJ "Venus Flytrap".

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Mr Breakfast for this recipe.
