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!
This is a moist, dense, not to mention DELICIOUS, bread with very good flavor. It is marbled and topped off with a peanutty chocolate crumb topping. The recipe comes from the book "Do Breakfast" by Jane Donovan.
Delicious and buttery this orange bread is wonderful with your morning coffee. Feel free to change pan sizes to your preference. I bake in 8x4 pans for about 1 hour -- checking after 50 minutes. I also always leave out the nuts since my DH cannot have them. This recipe is from Land O'Lakes.
I've had some very blah banana breads, but this one is wonderful. My husband found this one to use one day when we had a bunch of bananas that weren't getting any younger. My co-workers loved it recently when I made it for a breakfast at work. This is from a cookbook called "America's Best Recipes". In the book, the recipe is called "Banana, Sour Cream and Walnut Loaf".
From the book, "Cranberry Thanksgiving" by Wende and Harry Devlin which we read every year growing up before making the bread. It's a family favorite, great as gifts, and a wonderful memory from my childhood.
I used to make this for a Bread and Breakfast Inn in Highlands, N.C. This is a variation on my Sour Cream Banana Bread, which turned out to be a duplicate recipe here on Zaar. So, in loving memory of my dear banana bread, here is one of the variations! You will love this! You may use flavored yogurt to kick this up a notch! Try vanilla! This also makes a great gift!
Wonderful on a cold rainy day like I have here today. I have made this about 5 times since finding the recipe last year & always love it. I changed it from the original a little in the matter of spices & adding some flavoring. This is different than most other pumpkin cranberry breads in that it uses canned sauce so it is good year round if you don't have a frozen stash of cranberries. I haven't yet made it with the glaze. It is great without it spread with butter or Pumpkin Butter. You can sub 1 1/2 tblsp pumpkin pie spice for the spices but personally I like to be able to add a little more or less of whatever I may or may not be in the mood for.
I was looking for a way to use up the last of my Christmas Egg Nog. The original called for 1/2 c candied cherries, 1/2 c raisins, and 1/2 c nuts, but I used figs and apricots instead. I also used a little rum (just make sure rum, brandy, or extract, and nog together equals 1 cup). It is sort of like a pound cake--without the pound! Mix a little eggnog with some powdered sugar and drizzle over it for a more elegant presentation and flavor.
