I bake bread...
once in a while.
It's much easier (for me) to make a bunch of loaves of bread
than it is to bake cookies.
When I make cookies......
I always have a batch or two that end up in the oven
and you know what THAT means!
I made some Carrot-coconut bread this year
using a recipe from an
old cookbook of mine that I see is still in print!
I also saw another recipe book that has me intrigued.
I've always loved the Taste of Home magazine
and have used some of their recipes for years.
Wouldn't it be nice to have a WHOLE book
JUST with baking recipes???
Yes. it. would.
Here's the recipe for the bread if you're interested:
2 1/2 C. flour
1 C. sugar
1 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. salt
combine then add:
1/2 C. oil
1/2 C. milk
Stir until dry ingredients are moistened.
2 C. shredded carrots
1 1/3 C. coconut
1/2 C. raisins
1/2 C. pecans or other nuts
Bake in small greased/floured baking tins
30 - 40 minutes.
Each batch made about 5 small loaves.
Add a thin strip of Christmas fabric.
Tie a bow.
Give them away and say
