I can't wait to try the Hearty Pizza Soup and the Scalloped Potatoes & Ham. Gooseberry Patch also has a Pinterest board with more wonderful recipes from Hometown Christmas. Click the Pinterest link above and follow along. 

Now it's time for me to share the recipes that I tried from Hometown Christmas. The first recipe was for this delicious Apple Coffee Cake from Chapter One. This recipe comes from Robin Horst in Virginia Beach, VA. 

Robin says that her Grandma Helen made this coffee cake every year when she came to visit. You can use apple, pineapple or even peach pie filling. I found that this coffee cake taste even better the second day around. 

Grandma Helen's Apple Coffee Cake

1 - 18 oz package yellow cake mix
3 - eggs, beaten
1 - 21 oz can apple pie filling
1 - teaspoon vanilla extract
1 - cup all purpose flour
1 - cup sugar
1/2 - cup butter

Preheat oven to 35o degrees. In a bowl combine dry cake mix, eggs, vanilla and pie filling: mix well. Pour batter into two 9x5 inch loaf pans sprayed with non stick spray. Set aside. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, sugar and butter. Blend with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles crumbs. Sprinkle the crumb mixture evenly over the top of the batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 - 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. cool; remove from pans. Keep well wrapped. Recipe yields: 2 loaves.

The recipe states to bake the coffee cake in two 9x5 inch loaf pans. I use one large loaf pan and used the remaining batter to make mini coffee cake loaves for gift giving. Just wrap in clear sacks and attach a ribbon and a gift tag. I also added a mini ornament to add a festive touch. This coffee cake freezes very well.

Second on the list was these yummy Pepper Jack Corn Muffins pictured above. A pan full of these warm muffins pairs wonderfully with your favorite chili or taco soup. I baked my muffins in my cast iron popover pan, because besides popovers it also makes wonderful cornbread muffins. This recipe was submitted by Vickie herself.

Pepper Jack Corn Muffins

1 1/2 cups yellow cornmeal
1 - teaspoon salt
1/4 - teaspoon baking soda
2 - eggs, beaten
3/4 - cup sour cream
1/4 - cup vegetable or canola oil
1 - 14 oz can creamed corn
3/4 - cup shredded pepper jack cheese, divided

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, combine cornmeal, salt and baking soda: set aside In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, sour cream, oil, creamed corn and 1/2 cup cheese; add to the cornmeal mixture. Stir with fork just until moistened. Spoon batter into greased muffin cups filling 2/3 full. Top with remaining cheese. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes until golden brown. Recipe yields 12 muffins.

I couldn't imagine the holiday season without a Gooseberry Patch Holiday Cookbook in my kitchen. Not only do they have fabulous recipes, but their cookbooks also include so many affordable craft and gift ideas sprinkled throughout the cookbook. I have so many simple ideas saved that I can't wait to try.

Coconut cake and Ding Bat cookies are favorites that bring back all the memories of home at Christmas!

VickiT said... #

It would have to be cut out sugar cookies, because my Mom and I used to make tons of them every single year. Mom always made sure the local children's home had cookies and also a nearby nursing home so we decorated them and took them to both places. I always remember her when I make them myself.

I love Gooseberry cookbooks! At Christmas, my Mom would always make a Date Roll. I make it now and think of her when I make it! Merry Christmas!

Unknown said... #

One of my favorite reminders of Christmas was my mom's Jam Cake. She made it often from the berries we picked during the summer. Mom was special because she was in a wheel chair from polio she contracted just 2 months after her marriage. Everything she did was a struggle, yet she raised 2 children and worked hard on the family farm wearing her braces and using crutches. I think about her whenever I see a Jam cake recipe.

Creativeproducts said... #

I really would love to win this book I use some of the recipes from your other books all of the time. Last night I made Peanut Butter Brownies from one of your cookbooks and they turned out great. My husband ate most all of them.

Unknown said... #

Jam Cake is my favorite for Christmas. I remember my mom making this from the berries gathered during the summer. Mom was very special because just 2 month after her wedding she contracted polio. Everything she did from that time on was done from a wheel chair or with a huge leg brace and crutches. Life was hard for her living on a working farm. She did amazing raising 2 daughters. I still have the pan she used to bake the cake in.

Kay Sargent said... #

My favorite recipe that I have baked for the past twenty Christmas seasons is Fudge puddles,given to me by a dear friend.It just wouldn't be Christmas in my home without them.

Kathy said... #

My grandson( 8) who lives with me has been in the kitchen with me a lot while I am cooking & baking. He told me that he wants to be a good cook so I won't have to standing so much. I'm disabled & would love to sit in the kitchen & help him with new recipes in this cook book. I would love to see if he can cook & bake some of these recipes in this book. We certainly would put it to good use. I've been making a dish my grandmother made & everyone always asks for it. And It doesn't have to be a holiday If I'm asked to make it I would be happy to. My Grandma's scalloped corn it is so good & so easy to make.

My dad's Christmas Cookies. He would make his cut out cookies only between Thanksgiving and New Years, and he would make close to 100 dozen just for the family. I remember him either mixing or baking during the holiday. My cookies come close, but nothing can compare to dads.

Unknown said... #

My granddad's homemade ice cream. I still make it every year. I remember my granddad and my uncles taking turns turning the crank on the old ice cream maker. Then one year someone finally got him an electric ice cream maker. To this day, it is by far my favorite recipe. It has been handed down for many generations.

The recipe that takes me back to childhood Christmas is a recipe called Nut Loaf. I had thought that this recipe was lost, but ran across it in time for Christmas this year. My mother passed away Oct. 2008. So when I came across this recipe of hers, I excitedly and quickly made this recipe. I shared it with my coworkers at our Christmas party. It was a hit and a joy to be able to share with them as well.
