The Spatz brothers came to Frankenmuth in 1871 from Germany. A few years later they moved to Saginaw and opened their bakery. The recipe has never changed. Spatz bread is light and airy and absolutely the best bread sold.
If someone moves away from Saginaw - they ALWAYS ask family to bring some with them when they visit. It makes the best crutons and delicious toast. I think I have written this bread into every single book.
