    Blueberry-Peach Pound Cake

    Recipe Type: Dessert and Breads

    Servings: 10-12 servings


    1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened

    11/4 cups sugar

    3 eggs

    1/4 cup milk

    21/2 cups cake flour (no substitutions)

    2 teaspoons baking powder

    1/4 teaspoon salt

    21/4 cups chopped, peeled fresh Alabama peaches (cut into 1/2-inch pieces)

    2 cups fresh Alabama blueberries

    confectioners' sugar (optional)


    In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Beat in milk.

    Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture. Stir in peaches and blueberries. Pour into a greased and floured 10 inch fluted tube pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes; remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with confectioners' sugar, if desired.

    Patriotic Potato Chip & Pretzel Pie

    Recipe Type: Dessert and Breads


    For Pie Crust:

    2 cups flour

    2 cups Golden Flake potato chips, crushed

    2 tablespoons granulated or brown sugar

    1/2 cup shortening

    4-6 tablespoons cold water

    For Pie Filling:

    1 gallon vanilla ice cream

    1 quart fresh Alabama-grown strawberries, sliced

    1 pint fresh Alabama-grown blueberries

    2 tablespoons corn syrup

    1 package Golden Flake pretzel sticks


    Pie Crust

    In a medium bowl, mix flour, potato chips and sugar. Mix in 1 tablespoon of shortening at a time with a fork until thoroughly mixed. Stir in water until well-mixed. In a 12x8 inch baking dish, press mixture evenly to coat bottom and sides of dish. (Don't let the mix gather in the corners. More bare spots on the bottom are better than on the side.) Bake at 425°F. for 20 minutes. Check the last few minutes so pie doesn't burn. Remove pie from oven and let cool.

    Pie Filling

    Let ice cream soften in a large bowl out of the package. Blend together with fork until it is smooth but not liquidity. Spread the softened ice cream on top of the cooled pie crust. Refreeze the ice cream and pie crust for at least 30 minutes. While ice cream is refreezing, cut up the strawberries into 5-6 slices each and mix with corn syrup in a pour able container. Remove ice cream from freezer and decorate in the shape of a flag. Use pretzel sticks to outline the strips on the flag. Blueberries are stars and the strawberry mix can be poured into every other stripe. Place red on top and bottom and 13 stripes if you can. Keep in freezer for at least one hour before serving. Just cut and serve from the same dish.

    Sweet Potato Bread

    Recipe Type: Dessert and Breads


    3 1/2 cups sugar

    1 cup cooking oil

    2 cups cooked, mashed Alabama sweet potatoes

    4 eggs

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    3 1/2 cups flour

    1 teaspoon soda

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    1 teaspoon cinnamon

    1 teaspoon nutmeg

    1 teaspoon allspice

    1 box chopped dates

    1 cup chopped Alabama pecans


    Mix sugar, oil, sweet potatoes, eggs and vanilla. Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Put equal amounts in three standard loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 60-80 minutes. When cool, slice loaves as thick or thin as desired.

    Note: A variation of this recipe reduces the sugar to 2 1/2 cups and uses 1 1/2 teaspoons salt. Part of the flour may be used to coat the dates and nuts before adding them to the batter; this keeps them from sinking to the bottom.

    1 cup cracked ice
