You know I posted a recipe just the other day for some very special cornbread – my Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread. And declared (oh but I do declare a lot of things – just because it’s my blog, lol) that being a Northerner I liked my cornbread light & fluffy & moist.
So how do you all like your cornbread? Me, I’m a Northerner, through and through. I like mine light and fluffy and moist and in this instance, with a bit of a bite from jalapeno. It’s not too much heat, but just enough to make you sit up and take notice.
If you want an incredible, moist, fluffy cornbread, you’ve got to try Famous Dave Anderson’s recipe. He claims it’s even better than his corn muffins that are served at his Famous Dave’s restaurants. I agree!
I came across a super easy recipe and just HAD to make it. Mainly because I’m at the folk’s house right now and they have a kazillion boxes of brownie mix in the pantry. And who doesn’t like Brownies and Banana Bread? And why not combine them?
Ya’ll I know I love a good quick bread, and judging from the views of the ones on my blog, I think you do, too. Amirite? I think you guys will like this Apple Fritter Bread just as much.
I had such rave reviews from the family last week on my Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread that I decided not to rest on my laurels but to forge ahead & make Pat Nixon’s Date Nut Bread. I haven’t made or had Date Nut Bread for years, maybe decades, but I came across a fun, retro recipe from Pat Nixon, and couldn’t resist!
I love that Quick Breads just seem to scream “good home cooking” don’t you? They’re great for all kinds of occasions: when company is dropping by, for brunch, or maybe to take to the office or to a family who needs a bit of a boost. This would make anyone feel better, at least while they’re eating it!
About the only thing I like better than my Pumpkin Bread is a really, really good Banana Bread. I can’t tell you how many Banana Breads I’ve tried over the years. This one, right here, is my fave. I love it, the folks love it. My Da dubbed it the “Best Banana Bread I’ve ever had.”
For years I’ve made Ballymaloe’s Brown Soda Bread, and we’ve always liked it, but this year I decided to try their white for my St. Patrick’s Day dinner. I don’t know what the hold out was on my part – some nod to tradition combined with a commitment to eat more whole grains. I feel like a sinner, but this bread is so beautiful!
Here’s the funny thing – I don’t really like most beer – it takes a thick, dark, rich beer to even begin to pique my interest, and then I love to top it with a shake of salt just as an Irishwoman taught me when I was in my twenties. Try it – its heaven!
My Grandmother’s Pumpkin Bread, to me, is the “pinnacle” of Quick Breads. It’s a gorgeous bread, very moist, perhaps just a bit dense, and redolent of spices that signify fall. Heavily flavored with spices that must have, at one time, been quite exotic: cinnamon & clove.
