chuckle Baby Food Bread--Kids' Cooking Contest Winner!

This week's recipe was submitted to us by 11 year old Laura in Seffner, Florida. Laura's Mom says, "Laura says this is really fun. She's the only one in the house who can make it - when I (Mom) make it, it's too dry. Go figure."

Baby Food Bread

Tools needed:

Large mixing bowl
Measuring spoons
Measuring cups
9x5x3 bread loaf pan


1 3/4 cups all -purpose flour
1/2 cups unsweetened cocoa
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2-teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening (Crisco), NOT OIL
1/cup fruit baby food NOT APPLESAUCE
2 eggs

Preheat oven 350 degrees F. Combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Blend in shortening (mixture will resemble coarse meal). Add baby food and eggs. Stir just until blended (batter will be thick). Spread batter evenly in a greased or floured 9x5x3 inch loaf pan (batter doesn't settle much while baking, so make sure it's the shape you want it to be). Bake at 350F for 45-50 minutes, or a toothpick that's inserted comes out clean. Let it cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Serves: 1 loaf

Great recipe Laura!
