Since I live in the "Sunshine State," I just had to share this delicious muffin recipe that utilizes juice from our most famous crop---oranges. These muffins are a must when any of our "Yankee" friends come to visit. —Sharyn Browning, Loxahatchee, Florida
If you are looking for an easy bread recipe, this is it. Because there's no kneading involved, the bread is simple to make. A neighbor gave me this delicious recipe years ago after I had sampled the bread at her house.
My home is located in the Delaware Valley of Pennsylvania. This bread has the wonderful flavor of carrot cake, which is dearly loved in this part of the country. Because it's made with carrots, this bread is nutritious as well as economical-two important qualities in my home.
Our state trails only Vermont in the production of maple syrup in the U.S. I have many childhood memories of tapping our maple trees in early spring and watching the sap come out. Corn bread, or johnnycake as it's called here in scenic Mohawk Valley, was a staple of the men fighting in the Revolutionary War. The volunteers, who were known as "Johnnys", carried their rations with them, and the johnnycakes held up well for days.
My family laughs at me when I tell them that this poor dough never has a change for an hour, but it makes up for all that punching down with its texture and good taste. My mother-in-law taught me how to make this bread...now the recipe's been passed down to my daughter and two granddaughters.
When most people think of Maine, they immediately think of lobster. But we who live here know of something equally as good: wild blueberries. Their flavor is unmatched, and they're especially great in muffins.
Pecans are very plentiful in the South, and this is one of my favorite ways to use them. No other date nut bread I've tried is anywhere near as moist and flavorful as this one. I especially like to bake it for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
