If a recipe says "untested"...

We want to post scans of all the original recipes so everyone in our family can enjoy them even if we haven't gotten around to testing each one in our modern kitchen. As we test each recipe, we will add our notes and photos to the recipes we do test and remove the note "untested" in the title. If you make one of the untested recipes, take a photo of the finished product and send us a note to let us know of your experience so we may include those in the recipes as well.

Pineapple Nut Bread (untested)

This recipe is written in Grammy's handwriting. It is dated 1955 and is attributed to "PGE School" with the note "Oven Meal". PG&E stands for Pacific Gas & Electric. They had (and still do have) a significant presence as a large landholder in Plumas County because of the hydro power plants that were built along the Feather River. I know there were (and still are) several mountain camps that were PG&E. There is still a PG&E school in Quincy. I wonder if that's where she got this recipe.

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup fat, melted
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup chopped nuts
  • 1 cup crushed pineapple

  1. Beat eggs and sugar together
  2. Stir in melted fat
  3. Add sifted flour, baking powder, and salt
  4. Add nuts and pineapple (do not drain the juice off the pineapple)
  5. Stir just enough to combine
  6. Pour into loaf pan
  7. Bake at 350°F for 50 minutes
