My Family Heirloom - more creative life

My Family Heirloom

One of my prize possessions is the recipe box that contains this card.  This is my great-grandmother’s cinnamon bread recipe, hand-written by my mother, who died more than ten years ago. I make the cinnamon bread every year at Christmas and Easter. There are other cards in the box in my grandmother’s handwriting, and lots of old recipes that came from who knows where.

I didn’t find my mother easy to get along with, but one place we were always at home together was in the kitchen.

    What a treasure! I have a few of these in your mother’s writing, too, but not her cinnamon bread. Care to share? 😉

    Give me a few days to dig it up, Charlotte, and then I will post the whole thing. I have an old post somewhere on this blog that gives the instructions for how to make the bread — I’ll look for that too and post a link.

    Charlotte, I knew I had posted instructions for this cinnamon bread somewhere on the blog! Here’s the link: It gives the recipe and shows how the bread should look at various stages. Let me know if you try the recipe. It has always been a crowd-pleaser for me.
