There's no Michael Jordan without Elgin Baylor, there's no beer without yeast, and there's no pizza, pie, or those chili bread bowls without flour.
If you like fluffy brown bread this it. No white flour here. You can use any 100% whole grain wheat flour. I mill my own. This bread is not heavy like most 100% whole wheat breads. If it is you used too much flour and your dough was too stiff. If it flattens out and won't stand up you need more flour. The total amount of flour is usually about 7 cups. This recipe has been in my family for years and we all make it. We make a lot more now that we have powerful mixers and the hand kneading is bye bye.
Easy homemade basic cake from scratch that you can add anythings to and make any flavor you like. This is a family recipe that we have passed down 4 or more generations. You can add thing like 1/4 cup cocoa or a of box JELL-O(R) powder to make other flavors.
This recipe is over 300 years old! I found it in an old cookbook and cherish it dearly. Bear in mind this is a very dense, very rustic loaf, and creates a very hard crust. But it is fun for an authentic Irish treat. Because of the recipes age, all of the rising comes from the buttermilk, rather than bread soda (baking soda). If you prefer a lighter loaf, you may add 1 t. of bread soda to the dry ingredients.
Based on the Kirkland(R) Blueberry and Pecan Cereal this hearty bread has the subtle flavor of a great Blueberry muffin. Soooo good warm from the machine, cooled later and toasted. This will be your breakfast bread for special days!
Great spread with cream cheese and/or Nutella or just plain butter. Toasts up great. My kids loved it with peanut butter.
A rich, dark bread with that heavenly scent of ginger. Luscious with cream cheese and/or lemon curd. Great toasted too.
Absolutely the best pecan pie ever! What's more Southern than pecan pie? How about one that only takes 5 minutes to prepare?! Pecan pie even a New Yorker can enjoy...
A flavorful apple walnut bread. Great for breakfast or as a dessert
This is a recipe direct from my Irish/Welsh ancestors. Keep in mind, sugar and other ingredients were hard to come by before the early 1900's.
The days of the gritty, dry, sawdusty bran muffins that you need to choke down with a gallon of milk are gone! These muffins are guaranteed to be deliciously moist AND good for you!
This banana cake has a mashed banana and powdered sugar frosting. It's really simple to throw together and tastes great!
A buttery rum frosting tops this delicious banana chiffon cake made with buttermilk, walnuts and vanilla.
A German style Boston Cream Pie, given to me from my son's inlaws in Germany.
This makes a tasty and easy-to-work-with pizza dough in your bread machine. Knead and roll with liberal flour. You can top it with you favorite toppings, bake it (ideally on a pizza stone) and serve; or, bake by itself, then top and freeze for later.
There is a local pizza place here and I just happen to have the recipe. Or at least real close. Believe me, it's awesome. :-)
Best homemade donuts I have ever tasted. Light and so simple to make.
My wife does not like peanut butter, nuts, some dried fruits, or chocolate chips, so I have had to modify my recipe so she could take these tasty and healthy snack bars to work. With as many substitutions possible as your imagination allows, you can change the recipe to fit your on-hand pantry items.
This is my adaptation of a family recipe for skillet baked cornbread using buttermilk and cream-style corn. Goes well with just about anything!
This is the Carrot Cake my mom used to make - with a lot of modifications over the years. See for yourself.
