Pepperidge Farm Recipes :
"Serve at once with plenty of butter "
This is my First 'spoon bread' , and I was realy hungry during those moments ..
It's very soft inside, with a light and crisp crust.. eat this 'Bread' hot or very warm.
This is my comfort food for this evening.. !
It's like a souffle So you have to eat it quickly :-)

Spoon Bread - The recipe:
Preheat oven to 425F(218C)
4 cups milk
1 cup cornmeal
2 TB butter (=30 gr)
1 ts salt (or 1 1/4)

Scald the milk.
Mix the flour with the cornmeal.
Gradually stir in the cornmeal and flour mixture and cook until it has the consistency of mush. Add the butter and salt , add gradually the well- beaten eggs, stir well.
Pour into an oiled 1 1/2 quart casserole.

Apple Cake עוגת תפוחים

Based on the recipe from the Pepperidge Farm Cookbook/Margaret Rukin  
It's night here, nothing sweet was left,thinking of a NEW recipe to bake.. But which one?
So.. I remembered this Old Cookbook, the Pepperidge Farm Cookbook, I Love this book, I turn all the pages.. until I've stoped by this Apple cake recipe , the original recipe is for 2 cakes.. so I want only one..
I came to mom tonight, with a very big piece of this cake, and I told her- this cake.. is 'very knap' - this 'strange'.. word is a common phrase in our family, which means :less. For example, a low fat + low sugar cake , I think mom and dad love cake like this one ..[Is this a Yiddish word, mom..?], this word is used with Food , only..
So this cake is low.. not too sweet.. you can add more sugar for topping, as you like, here is the full recipe:
Makes 1- 8 X12 in cake
Preheat oven to 400F (200c), before cake is ready to bake.
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup warm water
7 gr (=2 ts) dry yeast
1 egg ,beaten
2 1/3 cups sifted AP flour

melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
3- 5 medium-size apples
1/2 ts cinnamon

Scald the milk; stir in the salt,butter and 1/4 cup sugar.cool to lukewarm.
Measure the waterinto a large bowl.sprinkle in the yeast; stir until dissolved.
Add the lukewarm milk mixture, the egg and about half of the flour; beat until smooth.
Add enough flour to make a soft dough.
Turn out onto a lightly floured board; knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.
Place in a greased bowl, cover. let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch down.
Turn out onto a lightly floured boared, roll into an 8 by 12 inch rectangle, press into a pan - 13 X 9 inch.
Brush with melted butter (1 oz=30 gr), sprinkle with 1 TB sugar.
Peel, core and slice the apples, press apple slices into the dough,sharp edges down.
Mix 1/2 cup sugar + the cinnamon; sprinkle the top of the cake, cover.
Let rise, until doubled, about 45 minutes.
Bake in the hot oven (preheated)- 400F (200c), for 35- 40 minutes.

It's so funny!! 2 days ago, my comfort food was a "flognarde" with apples inside that looks exactly like your spoonful bread (btw, why should they call it a "bread"?? It's much more like a giant pancake soufflé!! So, it seems that we like the same kind of food, don't you think??

avital ,
I think spoon Bread is an old Fashioned American recipe..,maybe most of those 'Breads' have cornmeal in..I don't call it Bread..It must be eaten warm.

Your Flognarde aux Pommes ,Ensaimadas de Majorque Too,looks yummy ! and the list is so long (all the other recipes and great pics) , Yes, I always become hungry visiting your Blog !
Thank you ! :-)
