I don't know if I ever thanked you properly for the recipe cards you sent to me (a while back). So officially, I would like to say thank you for sending a piece of our family's history to me, to continue these cooking/baking traditions with my children. I was quite young, but I do remember Granny Lu's big holiday meals. My brothers and I marveled over her relish trays. Black olives on our fingers and baby pickled corn.
She once made us chocolate chip pancakes at the cottage too, a looooong time ago. Now that I'm being all nostalgic, I found this photo from a summer vacation at the lake cottage with Granny Lu and Granny B. I was 4.
2 c. sifted flour
1 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. orange zest
1/2 c. orange juice
1/2 c. water
2 Tbsp. veg. oil
1 c. raw cranberries
(I also added 1/2 tsp. of ground nutmeg- not in the original recipe)
Combine all ingredients and pour into a greased loaf pan.
Bake at 350 for 50 min to an hour. Done when toothpick comes out clean.
Walnuts would be great in this, but my family gives me the stink eye when nuts show up in food.
