Hi folks - as I was unpacking more cookbooks I found a better homes and 
gardens"favorites" from 1967 - it didn't have too many yeast breads but here's 
one for rolls and a few interesting looking quickies:

1/2 c shortening
1/2 sugar
2 eggs
1/2 c mollasses
1 c milk
1 c sifted all purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c yellow corn meal
1 1/2 c whole bran

Cream shortening and sugar, beat in eggs one at a time and then stir in 
mollasses and milk - sift together the rst and add, stirring till just 
blended.  Pour into greased 9x9x2 pan and bake at 375 for 30 minutes.

1 Package dry yeast
1/4 warm water
1 3/4 c scalded milk
4 oz sharp process american cheese [1 cup] [although I bet regular cheddar 
would be good too]
1/4 c sugar
2 Tb shortening
1 tsp salt
4 c sifted all purpose flour
1 beaten egg
1/2 c corn meal

Soften yeast in water.  Combine milk, cheese, sugar, shortening and salt and 
stir until cheese melts - cool to lukewarm.  Add two cupsflour and beat 2 
minutes at medium, add egg, yeast, cornmeal and rest of flour - beat 2 
minutes.  Cover and let rise till doubled.  Stir down and fill greased 2 1/2 
inch muffin pans halfway full.  Let rise till double again.  Bake at 375 about 
20 minutes.  Makes 24

1 1/4 buttermilk or sourcream
1 c whole bran
1/4 c shortening
1/3 c sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 c sifted flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp slat
1/4 tsp baking soda
4 ounces shredded sharp cheddar [1 cup]
Pour buttermilk over bran and leave till softened.  Meanwhile, cream shortening 
and sugar till light, beat in egg. Sift together the rest of the dry except 
cheese and add to creamed mixture, alternating with the bran - milk mixture.  
Stir in cheese.  Fill greased muffin pans 2/3 full, bake in 400 oven about 30 
minutes.  Makes 12

1/4 c butter
3/4 sugar
2 eggs
2 tsps grated lemon peel
2 c sifted flour
2 1/2 tsps baking powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 c milk
1/4 chopped walnuts
2 tsp lemon juice
2 Tb sugar
Cream together butter and 3/4 sugar.  Add eggs and lemon peel, beat well.  Sift 
flour baking powder and salt and add to creamed mixutre alternately with milk.  
Beat until smooth.  Stir in nuts.  Pour into greasted 8.5x4.5x2.5 inch loaf pan 
and bake 350 for 50-55 minutes or until done.  Let cool in pan 10 minutes then 
spoon mixture of lemon juice and 2 tb sugar over top.  Remove and cool.  

I know they're mostly quick breads - but they looked pretty good and I'm sure 
those who'd like to can make appropriate substitutions  for eggs, shortening 
etc.  Enjoy!
