Did this grandma really bake a loaf of bread in her hot mailbox?

A Texas grandma has heard from people everywhere after she shared images of her baking bread in the mailbox. It has spread like fire, but is it true?

Roberta Wright said: "I have been contacted by people I've never heard from, and Countries I've never heard from."

Messages came from hundreds wanting to know how the Montgomery County woman did it. This week, she shared images on social media of what looks like her baking bread with her mailbox, which was an idea sparked by the recent string of Houston's hot, humid days.

"That kind of triggered, what else could you do if you have to use your oven mitts if it's that hot there inside a rusty old mailbox," Wright recalled. "What else could you do?"

It has lead to a viral post that's sparked suggestions on what else the mailbox could be used for.

"'Can you put a pizza in your oven?' It's kind of narrow,'" Wright said. "I'm willing to try it. It's kind of fun."

If the story is too good to be true, it's because it is. Roberta says while she shared photos of herself baking bread in the mailbox, it was all in fun.
