Beth’s Banana Bread

by on April 28, 2014 · 0 comments

I baked this as a last minute treat for my sister-in-law’s family to take with them on an airplane ride back home. When they reached their, Beth emailed asking for the recipe. Since then I’ve given her several, but this is the one she likes best, therefore I’ve named it after her. I like baking […]

Yeasted Blueberry Scones

This recipe was inspired by Angel Biscuits, which are biscuits made with yeast. They have a crumbly, rich, crust surrounding a crumb that is lighter than a baking powder biscuit and more like a roll or a soft muffin. So basically, you get the best of both worlds!  Plus the scones are a little puffier […]

lemon scone

I’ve used pudding mix in several recipes including lemon muffins, but I never thought to try it in scones until recently when I saw a copycat version of the Starbucks scones. That recipe calls for vanilla pudding, and since I’d purchased several boxes of lemon pudding mix for some reason (I think I was going […]

Sour Cream Banana Bread

sour-cream-banana-bread-2

This isn’t a very Valentine’s Dayish recipe, but if you happen to have some bread flour and some over-rip bananas, I think you’ll appreciate it.  It’s a banana bread recipe with sour cream for tenderness and bread flour for structure. Of course you can always stick with all-purpose flour, but I recently discovered that bread […]

biscuit

It’s cold here in Austin, so this morning I cranked the oven up to 500F and baked a batch of biscuits from Callie’s Biscuits and Southern Traditions: Heirloom Recipes from Our Family Kitchen. What a fun book! I received a copy from my friends at White Lily Flour who love the fact that Carrie makes […]

Banana Muffins Made with Mayonnaise

Sir Kensington's Mayonnaise

Today’s muffins are made with Sir Kensington’s, a fancy mayonnaise made with cage free eggs, sunflower oil and citrus. To be honest, it’s really too exquisite to use in baking, but I received a free sample for review so I didn’t mind testing it in muffins. If you happen upon it at Whole Foods, you’ll […]

Pumpkin Biscuits with Cinnamon Sugar

Pumpkin Biscuits

If you like the idea of a pumpkin scone but want to make something a little easier, here’s the perfect recipe. Not that Pumpkin Biscuits are really easier than scones. They’re practically the same recipe, but I always perceive biscuits as being easier than scones because biscuits are something I grew up with and scones, […]

Honey Graham & Pecan Banana Bread

Honey Graham Banana Bread

Here’s something you didn’t know you needed: another variation on banana bread! This one’s especially worth saving if you’re interested in seeing how graham cracker crumbs work as a substitute for flour in banana bread. Or some of the flour, anyway. In the past I’ve tried cake and muffin recipes where crumbs take the place […]
