More years ago than I would like to admit, someone shared the recipe for this quick bread with me. It is the perfect way to use up extra fruits or vegetables rather than wasting them. It is called ” A to Z Bread ” because you can, pretty literally, think of a fruit or vegetable for most every letter of the alphabet to make it with. For instance; applesauce, grated apples, bananas, grated carrots, peaches, canned pumpkin, strawberries, grated sweet potato, grated zucchini … well, you get the picture!
My son is a chef, so he always helps me come up with really interesting flavor combinations using flowers and herbs from my garden: peaches and lavender sugar; cherries, hazelnuts and cloves; pineapple and cardamom seeds; blueberries, tarragon and pistachios; rosemary and poppy seeds; lemon and ginger; pumpkin, orange and sage; mustard seeds, zucchini and chives; potatoes, fennel seeds and dill; and basil, tomatoes and walnuts. This recipe allows you to really get creative.
This makes up quickly and is a wonderful hostess gift or present when you are visiting during the holidays. Today I had some peaches that were developing soft spots, so I made A to Z Bread with Peaches and Lavender Sugar Sprinkles.
Now, here’s the recipe and I hope you’ll let me know what letters of the alphabet you cooked!
