Well, I am finally back to post a recipe! I have been busy getting ready for harvest. I am in baking mode right now-trying to get buns and muffins baked and in the freezer. The muffins are a great quick after school--before sports practice snack! Soon I will be driving one of our combines harvesting wheat so I want to get a lot of my baking done.

Today I made Berry Bread. Blueberries and whole cranberry sauce are two key ingredients! YUMMY!!

Berry Bread

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup whole-berry cranberry sauce
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
Directions: In a bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine dry ingredients; add to the creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk. Stir in cranberry sauce and blueberries. Pour into four greased 5-3/4-in. x 3-in. x 2-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Yield: 4 loaves. ***I used two small pans and then baked one dozen muffins*** I also didn't have buttermilk so I used a tablespoon short of one cup of 1% milk and added 1 tablespoon lemon juice! Works great!!******

Berry Bread....that's what's for an afterschool snack today in Farmchick's kitchen! ;)

Thanks for stopping by and make sure you leave a comment and say howdy!
