Found this awesome post on this sight! And I couldn’t wait to share with my friends!

This was given to us by an elderly friend and was honestly some of the best Banana Nut Bread that I’ve ever had. She added that it she believes it’s because of the cream cheese in the batter. The cream cheese adds so much to this recipe. Plus, she stressed not to skip roasting the pecans! The roasted pecans are the perfect addition. Roasting the nuts brings adds so much flavor! To roast them,  place the pecans on a cookie sheet in a single layer and bake at 350 degrees for a few minutes lightly toasted. She sprinkled a few pecans over the top of the batter before baking. She also left a small chunks of banana in the batter.  Mmmmmm! Mmmmmm!  It makes 2 loaves = 1 for the freezer! (more…)

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Swirl Bread

For a little piece of Roman advice, “Never get up from the table without thinking you have eaten something more”  Ah!  Instead of devouring this whole loaf, I will spare the limits of gluttony and share.  Hope you enjoy this fall recipe as much as I do. (more…)

This Amish Cake is not like the other Amish Apple Cakes that I have tasted in the past.  When I was searching the internet for recipes, I did not find this one.  No wonder it was so amazing! Thanks Vera for this recipe 🙂 (more…)

Unexpected flavor!

I found this recipe on my trip to NC and it has been around for generations. This is what many grew up with the only cornbread they ever had. I found it to be a little more cake-like because it’s very light and sweet with a touch of cinnamon. But oh my how wonderful it is!

Be prepared to love this – it does have corn in it. Chewy bits of corn and the unexpected cinnamon that adds to the sweetness and flavor. (more…)

Boone Tavern Spoon Bread

Boone Tavern Spoon Bread.  Almost like a cornbread with egg whites employed as the leavening agent – kind of like a cornbread soufflé. In Kentucky we just like it with plain ole butter!  I have noticed that others from different areas like it served with a bit of honey or something sweet. (more…)

It became a favorite of Amish cooks because the ingredients were always available and the pie kept well. That meant it could be made a day or two before the funeral supper and freed hands for other tasks. It is purposely very sweet to allow mourners to forget, if only for a moment, the pain of their grief.  The sugar can be reduced by in half. (more…)

This is delightfully light and moist. And is iced with a thin creamy glaze.  It doesn’t sound like something I would normally even try but boy does it look mouth-watering. Enjoy!
