Molasses Raisin Bread
I know many families that serve this delicious sweet bread every Christmas Eve with a salt cod dinner. It also makes the best ever morning toast.
Homemade White Bread

Fresh bread, warm from the oven with Newfoundland Wild Blueberry Jam is just about as close to comfort food heaven as we mere mortal Newfoundlanders can ever experience.
Another Christmas baking must-have in Newfoundland, this recipe is my family’s favorite that we have been making for decades. It just wouldn’t be the Holidays without this buttery, scrumptious cherry cake.
Raisin Tea Buns
Another of those recipes that everyone’s Nan or Mom always made. If you’re very lucky, they still do. If not, get baking up some childhood memories.
One of the very first recipes on Rock Recipes, my Nan Morgan’s recipe for soft, chewy, fudgy snowballs is still incredibly popular to this very day; now almost 12 years later.
