Hee hee! Fall is here and so are some of my grandma’s scrumptious recipes! Grandma loved to enjoy several types of bread and it was very common to find homemade sweet breads at our table! Some had fruit, some had nuts and some had both! Warm and fresh out of the oven and it’s a great way to warm up after being outside!

I hope you enjoy! Remember these are old-fashioned recipes so you can substitute to suit your taste.


3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon shortening
1 egg well beaten
2 cups of flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup English Walnuts, chopped


Cream sugar and shortening. Add beaten egg, mix and sift dry ingredients and add alternately with milk. Stir in nuts and pour into greased baking pan. Bake in a moderately slow oven, 325 degrees, about 1 hour. This recipe makes one large loaf. One cup of whole wheat flour may be substituted for 1 cup of the white flour.
