This is one of the recipes that I promised in my first article on baking in cans. Please forgive me for adding it so far from the date I promised. I had no control over events that have happened since I was on mylot last. Sorry. This recipe is so good that I feel confident that once you try it, you will forgive me for the late post. :) Let me know how you like it. Are you are enjoying this wonderful way of baking and recycling those cans at the same time? It can be rewarding just to know that you have finally found a way to recycle those cans that vegetables and fruits come it. This is an old way to bake but it seems to have been forgotten over the years. Now it is time to renew this wonderful way of baking in cans. This is a follow up of the article Baking in cans. You need to read it before you begin with any of the recipes in the Baking in a can series. It can be found here: http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1208406.aspx Recipe 1 Honey Bun Cake can be found here: http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1209164.aspx Recipe 2 Date Nut Bread can be found here: http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1215389.aspx Recipe 3 Parmesean Herb Cornbread can be found here: http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1215396.aspx Recipe 4 CINNAMON SWIRL BREAD can be found here: http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1256864.aspx?p=0 Spice Bread Mix in a Can 2/3 cup baking mix (like Bisquick or Jiffy mix) 2 Tablespoon brown sugar 2 Tablespoon finely chopped nuts 1 Tablespoon sugar 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon allspice Place ingredients into large bowl.

We baked in them from the time I was a child. We did it in the campfire when we were camping. We also did it in our wood cookstove. Now thankfully we have electric stove. LOL My Grandma baked in them also. I really dont know how far back in our family it does go. It is a great way to recycle used veggie and fruit cans though. We also use veggie and fruit cans to cut buiscuits with. It is just perfect. You simply put a few holes in the bottom of a can with a can opener like you use to open canned milk.

This would be a great one to add to a lunch box (once baked of course!). Hubby is a lover of goodies. I don't like to give him too many of the snack cakes that you buy in the stores. They are loaded with fat and things you can't pronounce!

I dont blame you at all. YOu just never know what is in the prepared foods anymore. I dont trust labels. I remember a few years ago when the "fat free" stuff came out big. WE checked labels and found that many were not "fat free" as the label says.

This sounds really great. Fattening and full of calories, but very good. Thank you for taking the time to post this. Thanks for the recipes from before.

I dont doubt that everyone forgot about them. I promised to post one a day but then I had emergency surgery and It was impossible to be online. I am so sorry that it has been so long since the original one was posted until these new ones were posted. I posted two today and will try to post more as soon as I am up to it. I am going to get offline now.
