I love tea breads. I love them buttered or spread with cream cheese. I love them with tea or salads or just anytime. I love to use them for gifts or just for myself. Try one or two from this list and see if you don't love tea breads, too!
From the famous Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House in Lynchburg, Tennessee, home of the Jack Daniels Distillery. According to the cookbook it's excellent as is, or the sliced bread "may be spread lightly with cream cheese for finger sandwiches and served with a fruit-salad plate for a bride's luncheon."
I toyed around with ingredients while making Zucchini Bread, until I came up with a recipe my entire family could enjoy. I hate Zucchini Bread! But I love this bread, and when I sell it in the farmer's market, people say its the best they've ever tasted! I like to make a fair amount of it, but because of the rounded-off ingredients, this is easy to halve.
Mom clipped this one and makes it periodically for Thanksgiving as a cake with cream cheese frosting. I like mine with a gentle dusting of powdered sugar. The clip is so old and yellowed I can’t figure out which president was a fan of this bread.
I like this toasted with butter or cream cheese. Yum! If you can't find melons in season, you can puree melon balls from your grocers freezer section. This freezes well. Prep and cook time is approximate.
I really love the orange cream spread with this recipe..even use it on other breads..the fresh orange makes a huge difference..keep refrigerated..I use the orange juice with pulp for this recipe..prep time includes chilling time for bread and spread
