Nut Bread

This is one of Granma’s better recipes and it is really quite yummy!!  It does only keep for about 2 days though, however it doesn’t last too long in my house, so that’s not a problem.  The scanned picture of the page looks like Granma may have used this recipe numerous times herself.

Granma’s Nut Bread Recipe



  • 2 cups Self Raising Flour
  • 3/4 Cup of Milk
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1 tblsp Butter
  • 1/2 pound of Walnuts I use a 125 gm packet of “Lucky” Crumbed Walnuts and it is plenty


  • Sift the flour and rub in the butter, add sugar and salt also
  • Eggs well beaten then milk, add the nuts chopped small
  • Mix thoroughly
  • Divide mixture into two tins, well greased and let stand for 20 minutes
  • Bake 3/4 hour, decreasing heat gradually

I think Grandma was a little light on the method.  I actually put all the dry ingredients together and then added the wet ingredients.  I put the mixture into a greased loaf tin and cooked at 170 degrees for 3/4 hour exactly.

Thanks Granma – this recipe is a treasure
