I have a recipe all picked out for my next installation of the Recipe File Project but thereâ€™s a bit of a problem: ingredient confusion! This was bound to happen with recipes penciled on scrap paper from at least half a century ago. This one is written on the back of a guarantee for coal from the North Western Fuel Company. Anybody up for Nut Loaf from a coal-fired oven? I know my great-grandmother used to bake pies in the wood stove at the family fishing cabin.
So hereâ€™s the question: In a recipe for Nut Loaf, what does â€œ1 cup grahamâ€ mean? Is that graham flour or graham cracker crumbs? First I was leaning towards flour but thereâ€™s already 3 cups of flour called for. Graham cracker crumbs kind of make sense and would certainly be a novel addition to a quick bread.
I think Iâ€™m going to go with graham cracker crumbs (once I remember to buy graham crackers) unless anyone tells me otherwise. But really, Iâ€™m looking for your input!
