Marion Cunningham’s Chocolate Walnut Butter Bread

Marion Cunningham--culinary superstar and “America’s grandma”*--passed away last July at the age of 90, leaving behind an indelible stamp on our national food heritage. As we ponder the year in chocolate to come, we gain inspiration from a woman whose mark in the culinary world is felt as much through her recipes as her wisdom.

Marion was in her 50’s when she began a new chapter in her life - overcoming agoraphobia and alcoholism – to focus on teaching, giving cooking demonstrations and revising the seminal Fannie Farmer Cookbook in 1979 and subsequent other much-loved cookbooks, including The Supper Book and the Breakfast Book.
