Effie's Mom's Nut Bread

Grandma always had a couple of loaves of this bread, along with the banana bread at all the holidays. This was one of Aunt Effie's favorite quick breads. You will find this recipe in just about any old cook book prior to 1960 as it was a popular bread. It has a dry consistency and is good toasted with butter. You will notice that there is no added fat in this bread.

Effie's Mom's Nut Bread

4 cups flour
6 tsps. baking powder
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk
1 cup nuts, chopped coarsely

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Sift together flour and baking powder, add sugar; mix. Add eggs and milk, then nuts, blend well. Pour into two greased 9"x5" loaf pans. Let rise 20 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cool. Freezes well.
*Bread spreads such as a honey butter or a cream cheese spread would be good on this bread.
**When I make this bread I will post a picture.
