This recipe was one of my Mom's. Easy enough to make, even for a first time baker and the results are a beautiful sweet bread with a nice texture. Enjoy it with your morning coffee or your afternoon tea!!
This is my version of a recipe originally found in an old issue of Taste of Home magazine. I make this each year and it is always a hit. My family likes this particular version because only contains fruit & nuts they like(cherries, dates or raisins and pecans)plus chocolate chips - no tangy sour bits of rind and also no alcohol so children can enjoy this as well. You also don't need to make this too far in advance as it requires no aging - I make this the day before Christmas Eve and serve it as part of our holiday meal. You can substitute any finely chopped nut you prefer for the pecans if they are not available in your area. They should be chopped finely, but still have some texture - do not use ground nuts. Prep time assumes you have already shelled and chopped your nuts. Cook time is 1 1/4-1 1/2 hours.
This delicious quick bread recipe is very moist and very sweet- more like a cake than a bread. A former neighbor of mine shared this recipe with me after we received a loaf as a holiday gift. Thank you Cheryl!
This is my favorite pumpkin bread recipe. It is very different from other pumpkin breads because it calls for some unusual ingredients that make it special. I almost always use freshly cooked and mashed pumpkin in this - I like to use a small pie pumpkin, which I cut into quarters, seed, and steam until tender, then remove the peel and mash. But I have used plain canned pumpkin as well - just don't accidentally use pumpkin pie filling - you need the plain puree. Prep time assumes you already have some pumpkin puree handy. The extra loaf freezes well. I have been making this for years, but originally found this in one of the "Best of the Best" series of US regional cookbooks.
This is very different from the usual zucchini loaves. First of all, it bakes into a round loaf and contains wheat. This is one of my favorites. One of my former neighbors used to bake a lot of items with wheat flour, and this is one of her own creations that she shared with me. Thanks Carol! Prep time allows for shredding the zucchini (I use my food processor).
Ah, back in the days when I was a new mother, I had to come up with creative ways to use all the extra baby food I had lying around that my young daughter refused to eat. After several attempts, I finally came up with this version.
This was rich and delicious. I originally got this out of a Jan/Feb 1991 issue of Eating Well magazine. It is still rich, but a lot healthier than many similar versions. I admit to sometimes skipping the toasting of the nuts part, it is delicious with toasted nuts, but also delicious if you just add them plain.
I searched and searched for a banana bread recipe with the texture that I wanted and couldn't find one. One day I decided to modify my Recipe #14187 to see if I could make up my own recipe. My family loved it and it was exactly what I was looking for so here it is. I hope you like it as much as we do.
