I am so excited to start my Cooking with Friends series! I was able to spend the last few years getting to know my new neighbor, Phyllis. In her early 90’s, she was the life of our neighborhood.

This spring, she left this world – and I was allowed to hold onto some of her recipe cards and a cookbook, Cooking with Friends. This book is a compilation put together by, it seems, a group of women attending the same church some 40+ years ago.

I’ve enjoyed flipping through the pages and seeing markings and stars beside recipes that Phyllis must have enjoyed.

Today, I begin sharing these trusted recipes and hope that you’ll be able to enjoy them as well.  Follow the Cooking with Friends series here.


Sunday Hot Bread Recipe

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 30 minutes
Author: Cooking with Friends


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons butter at room temperature
  • 1/3 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Sift together the flour, and baking powder
  • Mix in sugar, and salt
  • add and mix butter, vanilla, and milk
  • Spread in an 8" round cake pan.
  • Mix together cinnamon and sugar until thoroughly combined
  • Sprinkle liberally with granulated cinnamon and sugar
  • Bake approximately 30 minutes or until done


So, the original recipe had the ingredients included in a different order.  The butter was mixed with the sugar and salt prior to the flour and baking powder being sifted.
I moved the butter to the vanilla and milk step.  I do not believe that changing the order will change the outcome - but hopefully just allow the ingredients to mix together a little easier.  You could, also, cream the butter and sugar to start, then add the vanilla, and then sift the remaining dry ingredients, combine the two then add milk.
