I love those recipes that we all grew up with, they are just too good to miss out on.
Great recipe. I made it like Grandma Van Doren probably did, using regular flour, because I’m sure “bread flour” did not exist when Grandma was feeding her hungry family. Hint: Double the yeast to halve the rising time. It’s a real time saver.
The products were so simple that nothing at all was outlandish. Sugar, water, and yeast. I knew this was something that I was going to end up tossing away, but I thought I was going to do it again. It’s a Really cheap bread to produce and if it were a failure, I wouldn’t be out much.To Make this Recipe You’Il Need the following ingredients:
2 large eggs
2 CUPS.Of All-purpose flour.
1 CUP.Of canola oil
1 CUP.Of Regular White sugar
1 CUP.Of nuts or raisins (optional)
1/3 CUP.Of Whole milk
2 TBSP.Of cinnamon powder.
1+1/2 TSP.Of vanilla extract.
1/2 TSP.Of Kosher salt
1/2 TSP.Of baking powder.
1/2 TSP.Of baking soda.
I set my oven temperature to 160 degrees C.
I mixed the ingredients in two large bowls, one for the wet and the other for dry ingredients. Then I combined them together and I let the rest for 30 mins.
I greased a pair of large loaf pans.
In a small bowl, I mixed 1/2 cup of white sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon powder.
And I sprinkled the greased pans.
I poured the dough into the molds then I sprinkled the top with the remaining of the sugar+cinnamon combination.
I baked for 50 to 60 minutes checking the doneness by inserting a toothpick in the center of the loaves which should come out dry.
