For Christmas I made a Cranberry bread and for Easter, I made a scrumptious coconut bread!

Eva, I got this recipe a long time ago and it is so easy and delicious.. Hope you like it.

Poppy Seed Bread

1 pkg. white or yellow cake mix
4 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 c. oil
1 c. boiling water
1 3 oz. pkg. instant coconut pudding mix
2 tbl. poppy seed

Mix together all ingredients except boiling water.  Gradually add water, stirring with a spoon.
Pour into two greased loaf pans.

Bake 45 min. at 350 degrees

I also make a glaze of:

2 c. powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla extract
1/2 t. lemon extract
1/2 t. coconut extract
dash of salt
and pour over top when warm.  .. Cool and wrap in plastic wrap..

*  You don't  even have to use a glaze, but that's how my family likes it.  This bread also freezes well.

Hope you enjoy, and have a great Thanksgiving!

A family favorite for Christmas is Date Nut Bread. I have been making it for almost 50 years and give small loaves to family and friends.

I like to make several kinds & bake in the mini loaf pans. This way I can freeze them & have some to give away (wrap in foil & tie with ribbon & add a candy cane & a few tea bags or hot cho. packs). I usually make pumpkin, cranberry, banana nut, cinnamon swirl & maybe zucchini (if I have zucchini in the freezer).

I like making cranberry nut bread and pumpkin bread, but we make Challah bread, too.  The braid is always a nice touch for a pot luck.

My favorites to make are
Pumpkin bread.  I add whole cranberries and dried ones.  The recipe I posted calls for dates but I like to change it up sometimes and use cranberries.

I have a banana bread that I like very much but that takes a back seat to the pumpkin.

Not really a holiday bread but sometime after Thanksgiving I will be making Split Pea soup with leftover ham bone and with that I always make a fresh Rye with caraway seeds.  It goes so well with the soup.  On a cold day there is nothing more heartwarming than home made soup.

Split pea soup!  I haven't tried that for years.  Next time I'm shopping I will buy the peas.

Oh - I like baking bread (just don't do it much).  My family loves pumpkin, herb, sourdogh, you name it, they'll eat it.

I made Banana bread last week and to my surprise I forgot to put in sugar.  Oh my goodness was it bitter.  I had already given a loaf to our new neighbors as and they probably with think I was trying to poison them with such awful tasting bread.  When I see them I will apologise and tell them I still will send them a loaf of Banana Bread but this time I won't forget the sugar!  LOL with embarrassment
