will whet your appetites!
6 red pears
8 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons half and half
1/4 cup slivered almonds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a 9 x
13 inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Wash, core and thinly slice the pears. Place them in
the prepared pan.
Melt the butter, stir in the sugar and keep stirring
until the sugar dissolves. Add the flour and stir. Then add the half
and half and stir. Pour sauce over the pears. Sprinkle the top with the
slivered almonds. Bake for 30 minutes.
Serve warm in small bowls sprinkled with the nutmeg.
teaspoon baking powder
cup orange juice
teaspoon lemon peel
teaspoon orange peel
tablespoon lemon juice
tablespoon orange juice
Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray three
small loaf pans with non-stick cooking spray.
Cream butter or margarine and sugar. Add eggs and
beat well. Sift flour and baking powder together. Combine orange juice
and milk. Add the flour to the creamed mixture alternately with the
orange juice and milk. Beat until very smooth. Beat in lemon peel and
Spoon into prepared loaf pans. Bake for 45 minutes
checking after 40 minutes. Bread is done when a toothpick inserted into
the center comes out clean.
During the last 5 minutes of baking, prepare the
glaze. In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the sugar, lemon
juice, and orange juice. Stir and blend until the sugar is melted and
ingredients appear clear. Remove the bread from oven and spoon glaze
immediately over warm bread dividing glaze equally among the three
loaves. Cool completely in pan before removing and slicing. Freezes
well. 3 small loaves.
Juice Bread is especially good for breakfast when served with a
seasoned egg dish. It is also good as a part of an afternoon tea. A
slice of Orange Juice Bread topped with fresh strawberries and
whipped cream creates a decadent dessert. The bread is sweet but very
moist and light with a nice citrus tang.
