Beer Bread I
Like Margaux below, I discovered by accident that the texture of the bread is better if I let the dough (or, more accurately, batter) sit before baking. I don't bother kneading since this falls into the category of a "quick bread", really. One can tweak with additions of shredded sharp cheddar and jalapenos and bake as muffins (adjust baking time accordingly) as a wonderful accompaniment to chili. Just fold in those extra ingredients after mixing the batter. Oh, must comment. This beer bread will make your kitchen smell heavenly while it's baking!

Carrot Bars
Lost this recipe during a move and am so grateful for Kathy's submission. Tried and true. Moist and tasty. Quick and easy. What a Godsend to forego the grating of fresh carrots, scraping one's knuckles, et cetera. I top with classic cream cheese icing. A pecan half atop each carrot bar makes a lovely, professional looking garnish. Merci beaucoups, Kathy!

Nanna's Banana Bread
Oh my goodness! This is now my favorite. Nice and tasty and moist!!! I omimited the cinnamon and used the entire zest of a very large lemon instead--to brighten the flavor. Wet batter that results in moist mini muffins, which took 25 minutes to bake. Oh, used 3/4 C chopped pecans and topped each mini muffin with a pecan half. Yield? 48 - 60 mini muffins. A crowd pleaser. Husband's coworkers went crazy over these. Also good with orange zest in place of lemon zest. Or add almond extract rather than vanilla and top with whole almonds. Bottom line? I have found "my" banana bread recipe! Thank you, Nanna Towgood and Granddaughter Towgood for sharing. That's what it's all about. Now Nanna lives on in the hearts and mouths and stomaches of dozens of new admirers. God bless her--and you, too!
