Milkmaid's Recipe Box

FOOD, FOOD, FOOD! I'm such a FARMER at heart-- even a CALF knows that so much in life is about the FOOD! (A bit of a "bio" about me can be found way down near the bottom.)

You can find a recipe index entitled "Labels" down along the right side, starting below the picture of the farm. Then, below the "Label" list are pictures of some of my old "standbys"-- click on their picture and it should take you to the recipe.

You will see no advertising on my blog; this means there is no monetary benefit for me having "visitors" or "joiners"-- having said that, if you do wish to JOIN my blog, you can do so by scrolling w-a-y down to near the bottom of the page...

Cranberry Nut Bread

In the Fall when it was 'cranberry season', my mother would buy quite a few bags of fresh cranberries and make up a whole bunch of cranberry bread loaves and put them in the freezer to enjoy for quite a while longer.  This is the recipe she used:

This recipe makes ONLY ONE loaf.  (My mother would make six to eight loaves of this recipe at a time.)


2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup sugar

Make a 'well' in the above mix and add the following:

1 beaten egg
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons hot water.

Now, fold in....

1/2 pound cranberries, halved or coarsely ground
1/2 cup whole pecans (optional)
Little bit of grated orange peel  (optional)

Bake in greased 9x5-inch loaf pan at 325-degrees for about 1 hour or until toothpick comes out clean.  Cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.  Lightly butter the crust.
