Quick Bread Recipes Deluge Judges Buffet Dishes This Week Is New Challenge Quick breads proved a mighty popular classification in this weeks Upper Desi Moines-Algona Merchants recipe contest. There were recipes from all over the area, many from former prize •Winners, several from ladies who have entered before and a nice handful from gals who were trying for the first lime. Now, the judges definition of a Quick Bread is one that is made with soda, 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 savihg the recipes out to be entered the week Yeast Breads is the category. This helped to narrow the field a bit, but there were still so many recipes it was tough going to pick winners. After long consideration the nod was given to two winners- Mrs Joseph Strobbe, Algona for her Peanut Butter Bread arid Theresa Thilges, Algona for her Oaten Bread. In Mrs Str&bbe's recipe, ^peanut butter furnishes both the shortening and the flavor while Theresa Thilges bread has oatmeal, prunes and nuts in it. Four Runners-Up There were lots of recipes that were almost good enough to win and of these we picked four runners-up. Mrs Howard Long of Algona has such a good recips for Irish Soda Bread. It has carraway seed, currents and nuts in it. Mrs Richard Underwood of Cylinder came up with a Hawaiian Nut Bread which uses pineapple in it and Mrs Wallace McArlhur of Bancroft has a very good recipe for Butterscotch Nut Bread. Mrs Mel C. Thompson of Algona sent a recipe with sentimental history to it. It's called Jim's Coffee Cake; the recipe was made up by har late father and he taught it to her. Three Jadies sent recipes for Cranberry Bread—Vivian 'Button, Burt, Mrs Bob Deal, Aigona and Mrs Wallace McArthur of Bancroft. This bread is delicious but the recipes entered were almost identical so we didn't dare pick just o'ne of them to win. Much the same situation arose in the Banana Bread department with Mrs Wallace McArthur. Vivian Button, Mrs W. A. Hammond, Wesley, Mrs Ethel Farrell, 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 of her cooking career and if she'll get some of the recipes from this contest, Mrs Newly will pass with flying colors. Mrs Floyd Buncan of Fenton sent a recipe for Tomato Juice Biscuits, Mrs Margaret Fraser, Cylinder an Old Fasliion- ed Sour Cream Biscuit recipe, Mrs Ethel Farrell, 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 Bread. This recipe was given to h(-r by a friend who said that in the olden days when the circuit nding preacher stayed overnight at their house, they had Bishop's Bread for breakfast. Apple Bread recipes were sent to us by Mrs Joss Halverson, Fenton, Mrs E. W. Olsen, West Bcnct and Mrs Margaret Fraser. Vivian Button makes a similar bread but she calls it Paradise Nut Bread. We hud muffin recipes from Mrs Ethel Fan-ell—sour cream variety, and apple flavored from !Wri Marjjarei Fraser. Mrs Farrell also sent a corn bread or muffin recipe as did Mrs Joe Kenne of Jrvington. Mrs Jess Halverson and Mrs Floyd Duncan, both of Fenton sent Apricot Bread recipes. One of this week's winners, Theresa Thilges ajso 4-Aleona (la.) Uppef D« M6in« Thursday, Ottob«r 20, 1955 sent with her winning entry, recipes for White Nut Loaf and Whole Wheat Quick Bread. Gladys Barker sent an Oatmeal Nut Bread, Mrs Margaret Fraser, a Graham Nut Bread and Mrs Albert Mitchell an Orange Nut Bread. Benson Date Bread Benson Date is the title of a bread sent by Vivian Button and she also enclosed a Pineapple Nut variety. We have Prune Nut by Theresa fhilges and Orange Nut from Gladys Barker from whom we also received recipes for Flannel Cakes, Waffles and Fruit Fritters. They are Quick Breads, too, you- know. Mrs Barker also enclosed our only Brown Bread recipe. It originally came from Mrs Gertie Hofius who submitted it to the Union Township Cook Book of 1913. Mrs Barker still uses it and probably se'veral other local cooks do, too. Our two winning recipes appear ori|f)ur special contest page together with the messages from the Algona Merchants ' co-spdn- soring 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 could logically be served at a buffet-supper or dinner. • -' —GRACE, 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.
