Better Homes and Gardens All-Time Favorite Bread Recipes

The Better Homes and Gardens All-Time Favorite Bread Recipes from 1979 is one of those thin, hard-backed cookbooks that are found in stacks at thrift shops and flea markets.  Many of those books may seem out-of-date, but they have the virtue of not using too many mixes and convenience foods.
I, of course, can’t resist a bread book, so I picked this one up for ½ off the $1 sticker on it at our local church thrift shop.  It was worth the investment – it had lots of reliable recipes for quick breads, including waffles, pancakes, biscuits, muffins, cornbread, and the not-so-usual-anymore doughnuts, fritters and popovers, yeast breads, sour dough recipes and some spreads for breads. 
I liked the step-by-step illustrations for beginners, and plenty of photos.  Even Myrna found a couple of recipes to share.

Here a few:

Three C Bread

Date Apple Coffee Bread

Pimiento Cheese Braids

Cheddar Cheese Biscuits

Eggnog Cherry Nut Loaf

  1. I have to chuckle so often when one of the books you feature (old, out-of-date ones like this bread book from Better Homes and Gardens) is one I have on my shelf and can't bear to part with. When you post a picture of their covers, I feel like either you're in my kitchen . . . or I'm in yours. Love it!
