How to make it

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Butter a loaf pan.
  • In a large bowl, combine the acorn meal, flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Stir well.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, and oil, then gradually whisk in the melted butter.
  • To the bowl containing the dry ingredients add the liquid ingredients and stir to combine all, but do not overmix - the batter will be a bit lumpy.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake in 400 degree F oven for 30 minutes.
  • Note: If you don't have acorn meal, you can make your own! They're easy to prepare, and similar to chestnuts. Gather your acorns, examining them as you do so; throw away defective ones (cracked, moldy, wormy, etc). Shell the acorns; early in the season (August-September) the shell is usually soft enough to cut through, later season nuts might need a cracker. Boil the raw acorns until the water no longer turns brown (it'll look much like tea), changing water until it's clear. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F and roast the nuts in a single layer on a sheet pan for 90 minutes. Make dry meal by processing them in a food processor until they're a texture similar to regular corn meal.
  • Possible additions: a little cinnamon and/or nutmeg would be very nice in this bread!
