It's really hard and crunchy, but softens somewhat in the ice cream so that it almost becomes nutty, and it is the same with this old fashioned tea bread I am showing you today.
The cereal imparts little nutty flavoured bits throughout the bread, which never entirely soften, but remain a bit chewy and nicely flavoured.
I had not made this in years, but upon spying a box of Grape Nuts at the shops the other day I was motivated to pick up a box and bring it home so that I could bake this tasty loaf of nostalgia.
Its lovely served cold and sliced into thin slices which are buttered with softened butter . . . it's great warm as well, especially toasted, and yes once again, slathered in butter. Its awfully nice used to make chicken salad sandwiches. Its just plain good. I even enjoy it in thin slices with nothing on it . . . just eaten out of hand. I like to think I am eating something healthy, but I probably am not. Oh well . . .

Why not bake some nostalgia for yourself today! I am sure you would enjoy. Bon Appetit!
