Jane Brody's High-Calcium Cabbage Bread Recipe

* 1/4 cup orange juice and 1 tablespoon sugar can replace concentrate.

The author says this can be made with 1 cup of only one type of cabbage but for the sake of color would choose red cabbage.

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Step 2

Place the cabbage in a small bowl and toss it with lemon juice.

Step 3

In large measuring cup or medium bowl, combine the yogurt, orange juice concentrate, oil, powdered milk and egg, blending the ingredients well. Stir in the cabbage.

Step 4

In large bowl, combine the flours, sesame seeds, baking powder, baking soda, salt, mace and ginger, mixing them well.

Step 5

Gradually add the cabbage mixture to the flour mixture and mix the ingredients until they are just combined. Pour the batter into a greased 8x4 inch loaf pan.

Step 6

Place the pan in hot oven and bake for 35-45 minutes or until a tester inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. Turn the bread out onto a rack to cool completely before slicing.

This is a great bread to serve with a soup or salad meal. After the first day, it is wonderful toasted. Try it, too, as a sandwich bread.
