    Blessing Bread

    Sundays are a great day to think about our blessings. Try this recipe with your family. Each time you add an ingredient, say one thing Heavenly Father has blessed your family with. Remember that you can thank Him anytime, anywhere through prayer!

    1. In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup vegetable oil, 3 eggs, and 2 cups sugar.

    2. Stir in 2 cups of your choice of chopped or mashed fruits or vegetables (try apples, bananas, peaches, zucchini, or pumpkin).

    3. In a separate bowl, mix 3 cups flour, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon baking soda, and 1 teaspoon salt. Add to the liquid ingredients. Stir in 1 cup walnuts (optional).

    4. Pour into two greased 8x4-inch (20x10-cm) loaf pans. Bake at 325ºF (160ºC) for one hour until a toothpick comes out clean when you stick it in the center. Let it cool in the pan 10 minutes before removing. Enjoy!
