A to Z Bread



My Grandmother gave me this recipe many years ago, I know she made many of them,not sure about eggplant,tapioca,tomato or yogurt,but probably the remaining ones. I remember the lemon bread as being one of her favorites.
Come up with your own A to Z and let me know.
There is no i,j,k,n,q,u,v, or w.
I'm thinking quince jam for q
nuts,additional 1/2 c for n (is that cheating?)
jam for j
walnuts for w (pushing it ???)
