"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Ingredients:

Directions:
Directions:
1. Dissolve yeast in warm water in large bowl. Stir in 1 tsp sugar. Stir in eggs, butter, sugar, salt, vanilla and grated lemon peel. Stir in remaining ingredients except melted butter, mixing to form stiff dough.
2. Turn dough into lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Place in greased bowl, cover and let rise till double in size, about 2 hours.
3. Deflate and divide into 3 or 4 portions. Form into round ball and place in well-greased 1 lb. coffee cans. Brush tops with melted butter.
4. Cover and let rise in warm place about 1 hour. (Dough is ready if impression remains.) Heat oven to 375. Bake until golden and wooden pick comes out clean (~30 to 40 minutes depending on whether you are making 3 or 4). Remove from oven. Cool in cans for 15 minutes; remove and cool completely on wire rack.

Personal Notes:
You may make one large loaf in 2 lb. can and bake 40-50 minutes. I haven't done that in such a long time, I can't remember how well the dough fit. You may need one big and one small can. It doesn't look like much in can but it does rise. Too little dough is better than too much as it may spill over the top.
