WHAT HE WANTS TO BE WHEN HE GROWS UP: A chef

McKenzie appears to be well on his way to becoming a chef.

His mother, Donna, said McKenzie decided to turn his love of baking into a job to earn Christmas money last year.

"I noticed that people wanted to buy cookies, so I asked my mother if I could sell them," McKenzie said.

Last year he earned $225. "I spent most of it on Christmas presents."

At Easter, McKenzie sold this Bishop's Bread and earned more than $60. "My mom found this recipe on the Internet," he said.

McKenzie even created a special order form for his sales, and a friend created a business card for him. "I am so proud of his initiative," Donna said.

Bishop's Bread

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup candied cherries
  • 1/2 cup currants
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour one 9-by-5-inch loaf pan.

Beat egg in mixing bowl until frothy. Add sugar, oil and vanilla.

Beat to blend. Mix in buttermilk.

In another bowl, measure the flour, soda and salt. Stir to mix well.

Add walnuts, cherries, currants and chips.

Mix together.

Add all at once to liquid batter. Stir until combined.

Pour into pan and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until bread looks done.
