Pumpkin Biscuits

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 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 […]

Beer Biscuits

Not that you need an excuse to buy good beer this weekend, but here’s a recipe that calls for brown ale.  It’s a variation on traditional no-yeast beer bread, but in biscuit form — or rather, muffin form.  Because the batter is thin and gloppy, it needs to be baked in a muffin pan to […]

Double Chocolate Bread

After a string of failed baking experiments yesterday, I was happy to receive this tried and true, grade A+ recipe from a reader named Steven. Steven knew I had a lot of recipes for quick breads, but because he’d made this bread three times in the past few days and because it was so popular […]

White Lilyl Flour Biscuits

Last September White Lily Flour celebrated National Biscuit Month with a campaign called “Save The Biscuit”.   The goal was not only to celebrate the “iconic” quick bread, but to put the spotlight on memorable times spent in the kitchen sharing family meals or learning new cooking techniques. Well, it’s March.  I obviously missed the […]

Just when you think you’ve tried every banana bread recipe in the book, along comes this one from The Fairmont Hotel. Carolyn from Canada has been making it for years, and wanted to share it because it’s a little bit different. What’s unique about this banana bread is that it’s baked at a very low […]

Banana bread squares made in a mini bar pan

A few people have emailed saying they’re recovering from the holidays and aren’t doing much baking this month. I wish I was in that category, but every time I walk through the kitchen I’m compelled to pull out the ingredients and make something. Dinner? No. Sweets and treats? Yes! So I’m trying to find slightly […]
