A recipe for The Bishop's Bread | The Cupboard Drawer Recipe Book
Here is a sweet bread recipe from “The Cupboard Drawer”, I do not know the story behind the Bishops title but it is heavenly with a nice cuppa Tea whether it be a green or black tea. I was routinely accused of being a ‘heathen’ for drinking my teas with out milk or sugar, by my late wife Zena (an Englishwoman of the highest order). But when I took the time to make the Bishop’s Bread, my sins were smoothed over a bit. So Do Enjoy…
2 Cup All Purpose Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Salt
1 Cup Nuts, Chopped (I prefer Walnuts)
1 Cup Dates, Chopped (for an aphrodisiac effect get the darkest dates you can find)
1 Cup Maraschino Cherries (Sliced)
1 Cup Chocolate Chips, (again for darker dates use darker chips)
4 Large Eggs, beaten
1 Cup Granulated Sugar
Preheat Oven to 325 Degrees
- Prepare a buttered and floured 9 X 5 X 3 inch Loaf Pan; set aside.
- In a large Mixing Bowl mix the Flour, Baking Powder, and Salt., Then add Nuts, Dates, Cherries, and Chocolate Chips; mix lightly
- In a small bowl, beat Eggs and Sugar Together; Stir into the flour mix
- Turn mixture in to the prepared loaf pan; and bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 15 mins
- Let Cool, Wrap well in tin foil for storage
Yield 1 loaf
Note: This bread travels well through he mail, so if you have a huny deployed in Afghanistan or Iraq, use the lightest dates, and maybe butterscotch chips, and send them some, you can find the disposable aluminum foil loaf pans with a lid at your nearest grocer. Then make the dark one when they come home, and have some fun…as always DO Enjoy!!!
