Sweet Cornbread Muffins or Loaf with Dried Cranberries

This is the recipe from the Albers Cornmeal box, but I use it all the time when making cornbread, cornbread muffins or a cornbread quick bread loaf.  If I am making cornbread to eat with chili, I use only one heaping teaspoon of sugar, and I sometimes substitute buttermilk for milk.  You can add an extra egg and/or more baking powder to make a lighter, fluffier loaf, but start with the basic recipe below before you start playing around with it.

QUICK CORNBREAD

1 cup cornmeal

1 cup flour

1 lightly beaten egg

2/3 cup sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 cup milk

1/3 cup melted butter or vegetable oil.

Mix dry ingredients, then add egg, milk and oil.  Stir until mixed but do not over blend.  Bake at 375 degrees in preheated oven.  You may bake in an 8 x 8 pan, a loaf pan or muffin tins, just watch the time and bake until cake tester can be removed clean from the center.  Muffins about 12 to 15 minutes, the larger pans 30 to 40 minutes.

NOTE:  For a sweeter treat, stir in 2/3 cup dried cranberries, blueberries or raisins before baking.

Bobby’s Angel Food Cake

It’s been years since I actually made an angel food cake from scratch; I gave my mother’s and grandmother’s angel food cake pans with the removable bottoms to my niece.  I haven’t made one with a mix either.  I usually just buy one if I need to, but it’s not something that happens very often.  That said, here is a great recipe:

Boston Bean Sandwiches / Doble Smørbrød med Moste Bønner

In Ireland and the UK, baked beans are often served with a full breakfast; and beans on toast are popular as a quick supper dish.  My grandkids love the Batchelor’s Beans that come from Ireland, when I can get them.  This is a recipe for a bean sandwich:

Hoisin Pork Tenderloin With Ramen. New Music From Sarah Cripps.

I discovered hoisin sauce years ago when introduced to moo shu in a Chinese restaurant.  I use it as a sauce or seasoning all the time, particularly when I want to eat noodle and veggies for a meatless meal.

Lemony Strawberry Jam

This is a link to a link.  It walks you through the process of making jam and canning at home.  My mother made lots of jam when we were growing up, especially strawberry jam when strawberries were in season.  She used pectin and went through the entire canning process, making jars and jars of the stuff.  I found a recipe for strawberry jam in my great aunt’s cookbook, and the only ingredients are strawberries, lemon juice and sugar.  Since I rarely make more than 3 or 4 jars at a time, I usually just put the jam in clean glass containers and immediately refrigerate before giving it to family members.  The recipe at the links below uses only lemon zest.  For this many strawberries, I would probably add about 3 tablespoons of lemon juice.  There is another strawberry jam recipe that my mother got from her cousin, Aunt Annie’s daughter.  You can find it here if you search the posts.  It uses only sugar and berries, but the sugar is dissolved in a little water before adding the fruit.  Take a look.  It’s posted June 8, 2014.

Carol’s Bread and Butter Pudding

This is a very traditional recipe, and worth trying; you can serve it warm with a little custard sauce on top, if you like.  There are so many variations today which add different flavorings and tons and tons of sugar.  I made one the other day that was lemon flavored with dried blueberries.  It was good but nothing like this recipe, which I am sure was originally invented to use up dried bread.  This is almost exactly like the recipe I got in Ireland nearly 25 years ago.
