Grape-Nuts Quick Bread- Mom's
I found the recipe in Mom's file cut from an old Grape-Nuts cereal box. Its probably from the 1950's. Still a wonderful quick bread and nutritous alternative to white bread!

How to Make Grape-Nuts Quick Bread- Mom's
- 1Heat milk until almost, but not quite boiling. Pour milk over cereal and let stand until cool.
Sift flour once, measure, add baking powder, salt, and sugar, and sift again.
Add egg and shortening to cereal mixture and mix well. Then add flour mixture and stir enough to dampen flour.
Turn into 10 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan, lined on bottom with paper. Bake in moderate oven (350°F) 1 hour, or until done. Wrap in waxed paper and store several hours or overnight before slicing.
