When I visit my Italian Relatives in Springfield MA, I can find STAR Bread. When I was small several places had it and it was truly shaped like a 5 pointed star. I was still able to find it last year but only one place makes it and they now shape n something that looks more like an H instead of a star. I would like to obtain a recipe for this bread. It is probably from Northern Italy as the Italians that settled in Springfield are from the north.
Thanks.

Thanks for response. The store where we got it did not bake it but I do have a copy of the label so I might be able to get in touch with them.

I cannot figure out how to attach label copy but it says:

Balboni's Star Bread

Ingredients: wheat flour (bleached wheat flour, niacin reduced from thiamine menonitrate, riboflavin, folic acid, malted barley flour, potassium bromate) salt, yeast, water, liquid soybean oil, shortening.

Per my cousin lots of bakeries used to make it but this is the last one.
