Actually, to be technically correct this is from my Great-Grandmother Johnson and I assume she won't mind if I share her recipe with you all.
Notice the oranges picked fresh from our backyard! =)
|For this trick, politely ditch the cards and get your whisker out.|
|It's starting to look like dough.|
|Try not to cut your hands. =0|
Fresh orange peel!
|And to make the trick look extra pretty throw in some orange slices. |
I successfully performed my first "magic trick!" I've been having some fun with punny jokes lately, maybe a little too much fun. I really have to stop telling jokes like that because after awhile they aren't that funny. Anyway, I'll stop with my corny jokes and give you the recipe.
Adapted from: Great Grandma Johnson's recipe
2 eggs beaten
1 cup sugar
2 1/2 T. melted shortening
2 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
4 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cup milk
1 cup nuts
1 grated rind orange
2/3 cup chocolate chips (optional)
Mix and put in greased loaf pan, let stand 20 min. Bake in 350 degree oven for 1 hour, cool for 5 minutes. Pour on glaze, optional.
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
In heavy quart sauce pan, mix glaze ingredients. Heat to boiling, remove from heat, cool no longer than 30 min (do not over cool, or else glaze will harden).
