'.-.'cla'ssincatjbri in<;,this weeks tipper Bes ; Mpines-Algoha Merch'ahts recipe contest, There wefti recipes from all over the area, many from former prize wlrmers, several from ladles who have;,, entered; before arid a -nice haridful from gals, who were try- iHg'fpr the first time. , ,, , NoW, .the judges definition <,at & Quick Bread is one that is made with so'dat -baking powder, etc. for the. leveaning power, we think that Yeast Breads deserve a classification - all by -themselves and since several of you sent us some • very good ones we .are saving tHereclpes out to be entered the weekf.Yeast Breads is the category. This helped to narrow the field a bit, but there ,were still set many recipes it was tough going to pick winners. After long consideration the •nod 1 was given to two winners- Mrs Joseph Strpbbe, Algona lor her Peanut Butter Bread and Theresa Thilges, Algona for her Oaten Bread. -In 'Mrs Strobbes recipe, peanut .butter, furnishes both the shortening and the flavor while Theresa -Thilges bread has oatmeal, prunes and nuts r in it. • • Four Ruriners-Up There were lots of recipes that were almost good enough to win and pf these we picked four runners-up. Mrs. Howard Long of Algona has such a good recipe for Irish Soda "Bread. It has carraway seed, currents and nuts in it. • . Mrs Kichard Underwood of Cylinder came up with a -Hawaiian Nut Bread which uses pineapple in it and Mrs Wallace McArthur of Bancroft has a very good re cipe for Butterscotch Nut Bread. Mrs Mel C. Thompson of Algona se'nt a recipe with sentimental history to it. It's' called Jim's Coffee Cake; the recipe was made up by her late father and he taught it to her. Three ladies sent recipes for Cranberry Bread— Vivian Dutton, Burt, Mrs Bob Deal, Algona and Mrs Wallace McArthur of Bancroft. This bread is delicious but the recipes entered- were almost identical so we didn't dare pick just one of them to win. Much the same situation arose in the Banana Bread department with Mrs Wallace McArthur. Vivian Dutton, Mrs W. A. Hammond, Wesley, Mrs Ethel Farr'ell, Whittemore and Gladys Barker of Cedar Rapids sending them. We also had three identical recipes for Carrott Bread from Mrs Albert Mitchell, Fenton, Mrs Richard Underwood, Cylinder and Mrs Jess Halverson of Fenton. Many a bride is judged by her biscuits during the first years pf her cooking career and if she'll get some of the recipes from this contest, Mrs Newly will pass with fly ing -colors. Mrs Floyd Duncan of Fenton sent a recipe for Tomato Juice Biscuits, Mrs Margaret Fraser, Cylinder an Old Fashioned Sour Cream Biscuit recipe, Mrs Ethel Fan-ell, an Easy Mix Flaky Biscuit and Gladys Barker one for Baking Powder Biscuits. Coffee Cake & Apple Bread Coffee Cake comes under the Quick Bread heading and Mrs Margaret Fraser sent us several — Plain Coffee Cake, Sweet Coffee Cake and Individual Coffee Cake, Mrs Ethel Farrell sent Easy Coffee Cake, Struessel Topped and a Peach Coffee Cake. Gladys Barker sent a Pineapple Coffee Cake and a recipe for Bishop's Broad. This recipe was given to her by a friend who said that in the olden days when the cireui riding preacher stayed overnight at their house, they had Bishop's Bread for breakfast. Apple Bread recipes were sent to us by Mrs Jess Halverson, Fen ton, Mrs E. W. Olsen, West Bend and Mrs Margaret Fraser. Vivian Dutton makes a similar bread but she calls it Paradise Nut Bread. We had muffin recipes from Mr.s Ethel Farrell — sour cream variety, and apple flavored from IVirs Margaret Fraser. Mrs Farrell also sent a corn bread or muffin recipe as did" Mrs Joe Kcnne oT Irvlnglon. Mrs Jess Halverson and Mrs Floyd Duncan, both of Fentofi gent Aplicot Bread recipes. One of this week's winners, Theresa Thilges also sent with'her winning, entry, recipe* for White .Nut ;Loaf and MiOle Wheat Quick: Bread Gladys Barker sent ah Oatmeal HUt Bread, Mrs Ma^aret Fraser, a Graharn Nut Brea.d and Mrs Albert Mitchell an Orange Nut Bread. *•;'•..' v . j'i Beftson Dale Bread , Benson P'ate is, thistle 6f a bread sentry,Vivian:puUon and *fe also enclosed a Pi^pple Nut vaVlety. j i^e have Prtfhe Nut by ThS'TMges and Orange Nut frdm'Gtady's Barker from whom we also rec'eived recipes for Fian- rfel Cakes, Waffles and Fruit Fritters.. They are Quick Breads, too, ypu : know. Mrs Barker also enclosed our .only Brown Bread recipe, 'Jt originally came from Mrs Gertie Hofius who submitted it to the Union Township Cook Book of 1913., Mrs Barker stUl uses it and probably several pther local cooks do, too. Our two winning recipes appear oh our special- contest page together with.the messages from the^ Algona- Merchants : co-sponsoring these contests. And now the Go signal is on for next week's contest and they have ten more dollars for prize winners. The category, Buffet dishes,, is pretty general so it should give you good cooks lots of room for variety. Meats, cold platters, salads, desserts,—anything just so. it cbuld logically be served at a buffet supper or dinner. ;•• — GRAOL. - Nicllei$ Election Held By Burt Bluebirds The Burt Blue Birds 4-H held their regular meeting at the home of Sherry Bernau on Oct. 9 with 12'' members answering roll call, the following officers were electer; Lois Lichter, music chairman; Judy Hinckley, recreation chairman; and Sherry Bernau, photographer.
