  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup milk

  • 1 ½ tsp cinnamon

Banana Bread Directions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

  • In a different mixing bowl, mix together butter and sugar until smooth. Add in eggs, vanilla extract, mashed bananas, and milk continue mixing on low speed until combined. Set aside.
  • In a different mixing bowl, whisk together dry ingredients, then add to the banana mixture. Mix until JUST COMBINED. Do not overmix.
  • Bake for approximately 1 hour. Start checking by inserting a toothpick at the 1-hour mark.
  • The toothpick should be clean before you take the bread out of the oven.
  • Cool in the Banana bread pan for ten minutes, then carefully remove the bread from the pan and transfer the bread to a cooling rack to finish cooling.

  • Half one banana lengthwise for toppings, or use any other toppings you desired; walnuts, raisins, chocolate chips, etc.
  • Substitute milk with buttermilk if desired

Recipe – Irish Soda Bread

Advertisements

Contrary to popular belief, Irish soda bread didn’t originate from Ireland. In fact, it was the Native Americans who first used soda to make their bread before European colonization. These indigenous people leaven the food from ashes of wood rather than yeast.

Due to hunger and poverty as a result of the potato famine, soda bread was gradually adopted and became a popular staple in many Irish kitchens. This economical recipe required only a few ingredients, including sour milk, salt, baking soda, and flour. It was also a great option for rural families which had limited access to ingredients and cooking equipment.

Since most of the farmhouse and lower-class kitchens didn’t have access to an oven at that time, soda bread was prepared on griddles with open hearths or in iron pots. This unique method allowed for the signature hard crust, slight sourness, and dense texture that today Irish soda bread is typically known for.

Traditional soda bread was typically marked with a cross on its top for superstitious reasons. Most Irish families believed that this would help to ward off evils and protect their family. However, typical shapes and patterns of the loaves could vary greatly by region. Today, Irish soda bread has gained widespread popularity all over the world. Modern versions sometimes include other ingredients like seeds, raisins, sugars, or butter to enhance its taste and flavor.

Despite its short story and humble origin, Irish soda bread still plays an essential role in the culinary of the country. Now it’s time to get started and make a loaf of this bread for this season’s green-tinted celebration.


Ingredients

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon double-acting baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 6 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 1/2 cups dark seedless raisins (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon caraway seed (Optional)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk


Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Grease 2-quart round casserole dish or preheated baking stone.
  • In large bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda.
  • With pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Stir in raisins and caraway seed. (optional)
  • In small bowl with fork, beat eggs slightly.
  • Remove 1 tablespoon egg and reserve.
  • Stir buttermilk into remaining egg.
  • Stir into flour mixture just until flour is moistened (dough will be sticky).
  • Turn dough onto well-floured surface.
  • Shape into a ball.
  • Place in casserole dish.
  • In center of ball, cross 4-inch cross, 1/4 inch deep.
  • Gently, brush dough with reserve egg.
  • Bake about one hour and 20 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Cool in casserole dish on cooling rack for 10 minutes.
  • Gently, turn out of casserole dish and return bread to cooling rack to finish cooling.


Cook’s Note

  • Soda bread goes stale very quickly and should be used on the day of baking or the day after.

Use tips to make perfect Irish soda bread

Baking your own Irish soda bread at home can be exciting and challenging at the same time. Here are a few helpful tips that you can try to yield better loaves.

  • Start with choosing the best ingredients. It is suggested to use locally milled, fresh, unbleached pastry flour or flour of the soft wheat. Avoid purchasing hard flour or self-rising flour as it already contains salt and baking powder. For baking soda, you should use a fresh box to prevent dense bread. If you don’t have cultured or soured milk on hand, consider making your own with low-fat milk and lemon juice.
  • While many people often stir the dough with a fork, it’s better to use your hand which can be stiffened into a “claw”. You should thrust the claw in the middle and work in circles outwards. Stop when the mixture gets evenly moistened.
  • You shouldn’t knead the dough. Instead, make sure to be gentle with it.
  • Also, don’t forget to cut the cross in the middle of the bread.
  • Once the bread has been baked and cooled, slice the bread into wedges, then eat with butter. It is a must-have option for St. Patrick’s Day, which can be served with a Dublin coddle, beef stew or Irish stew.

A Home Cook’s Muffin Primer

Advertisements

Who can say NO to muffins? Definitely NOT me. Everyone in the world adores muffins regardless of what they may say. If you have never tried one before, you will become a believer once you take your first bite.  Muffin recipes come in many different flavors which make them more irresistible.

Muffins are small, sweet cup-shaped bread usually served in a paper baking cup or straight out of a muffin tin and are accompanied by jam, butter, Cheshire cream, and much more.

Muffin quick breads are delicious and a perfect addition to your breakfast. They are very versatile. You can make savory cheese and ham muffins or sweets like strawberry and banana chocolate chip muffins.  There is an array of muffin recipes out there today.

A Brief History of Muffins

Bakers started making muffins in the early 1700s They were little flat, quick bread or cake with little sugar and easy baking. The word was spelled “moofins,” and many language historians suggested that the word comes from either the French word “moufflet,” meaning “soft bread,” or from the German word “muffe,” which is often applied to a type of cake.  Regardless of where they got their names, muffins have become very popular.

These little round bread became much sweeter in the 19th century. Some bakers still used yeast while others relied heavily on baking soda but were still round and flat.  Many chefs used plain wheat or corn and baked them on a griddle instead of in the oven.

Modern muffins look like cupcakes, but the first sets were a lot like what we call English muffins. One big difference between the ancient and modern muffins is that the first muffin recipes had a limited number of flavors, while current ones come in almost every flavor one can imagine such as chocolate, strawberry, pineapple, pumpkin chips, banana, and et cetera.

Different Types of Muffins

There are two main types of muffins – the English muffins and the American muffins. Both vary in style, flavor, and history.

English-style muffins have a dry texture. They are flat yeast-raised muffins with nooks and crannies that are cooked on a griddle rather than baked in an oven. This muffin recipe dates back to the 10th century in Wales. The muffins were then cooked in hoop-like muffin rings and on the bottom of a skillet or directly on a stove.

So what are American muffins? American-style muffins differ from the English-style muffins. They are quick bread made with flour in individual molds. This is because the mixture forms batter rather than dough.  American muffins are leavened with potash which produces carbon dioxide gas in the batter. These muffins can be further divided into two categories – cake-like and bread-like muffins.  Both categories have peculiar techniques of mixing the batter. The surface of American muffin quick bread is bumpy because the volume of the batter usually doubles during baking. They are traditionally served for breakfast.

In the United States, three states adopted an official muffin. Blueberry muffins are the official muffins in Minnesota. Massachusetts adopted the corn muffins in 1986 as its official state muffin and in 1987 New York adopted the apple muffins as its official state muffin.

The Different Approaches to Making Muffins

Breakfast

Breakfast muffins are normal muffins but with extra nuts, veggies, fruits, and whole-grain flours. You can bake a batch of healthy morning muffins during the weekend and they will take you for the week or you can easily bake a fresh batch every morning.

Sweet vs. Savory

Sweet muffins don’t have to contain excess fat, sugar, or calories. These muffins are soft and light with a delicious taste of different flavors and fresh ingredients.

Winter is coming! This means there will be lots of savory dishes like stews and soups and baked goods like muffins.  Savory muffins are perfect for the toppings to the batter, filled with Bacon, spring onions, and other spicy ingredients. They are ideal as a soup side and are great for a lunchbox treat. Extra virgin oil makes it more virtuous.

Muffin Mixing Method

When making muffin quick bread, there is a need to pay close attention to the order and manner in which you mix the ingredients in the recipe. If the ingredients are mixed in the appropriate way, it will produce perfect results. The dry and wet ingredients should be mixed in separate bowls. Make a well in the dry ingredients, and then pour in the wet ingredients and stir until just combined.

Cooking Tip

  • To make muffins that are soft, light and fluffy, you must avoid over mixing the batter. The over-mixed batter will not give the desired outcome of a perfect muffin; it makes muffins too dense and ruins the airy texture.
  • Always remember to use a muffin liner or grease your muffin pan thoroughly before you scoop in the batter. If you skip this step, baked muffins will lose their shapes when you finally take them out
  • Preheat oven before baking time. This makes the muffin batter less dense and allows for easy baking and puff up.
  • Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Make a well in the dry ingredients and then stir in the wet mixture until combined.
  • Don’t overfill muffin cups. Filling the cups to the brim will alter the beauty of the baked muffins. Aim to fill your muffin cups ¾ full.
  • After removing muffins from the oven, let them cool off in the muffin tin for 5-6 minutes, and then remove and transfer them to a cooling rack for further cooling before storing or serving.
  • Allow muffins to cool off completely before storing them. Put muffins in sealable plastic bag or airtight container. Use a paper towel to line the base of the container and cover the muffins with another paper towel. You can also put muffins in freezer bags or wrap in foil and store in the fridge.
  • Creativity is the spice of life. Be creative. Do not adhere strictly to the available Try something new by adding some form of creativity to the recipe. Be bold and let your imagination run wild.

Recipe – Blueberry Muffins

Advertisements

Blueberries are my favorite nutritional superstars. They are healthy and range in flavor from sweet to tart and packed with nutrients. I have loved them for as long as I can remember.

Blueberry muffins are easy and quick to make, but it’s quite difficult to make them soft and moist since blueberries become hard when baked. However, you need to take precaution while preparing blueberry muffins.

This is my special blueberry muffin recipe that I have been using for over ten years, and I have never grown tired of using it.

  • In a large mixing bowl, add the butter and sugar then beat with an electric mixer until the mixture becomes creamy.
  • Add one egg at a time, beating continuously after each addition.
  • In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add the dry mixture to the butter-sugar-egg mixture, and then beat until well blended.
  • Stir in the milk, almond and vanilla extract, mix until smooth. Add the berries and stir quickly.
  • Fill each muffin cup (¾ to almost full), using all of the batter.
  • Put the cups in the muffin pan and bake 25 to 30 minutes or until they are golden brown.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and place it on a rack. Let it cool for 10 minutes.

If the muffin lifts out without sticking or crumbling, then remove all of the cups and allow the muffins to cool completely on a wire rack. But if the muffin sticks, leave them for another 10 minutes before removing all of them.

Your muffin will still retain its great taste even if it crumbles while removing it from the pan.

Recipe – Angel Biscuits

If you’re new to baking, here’s introducing to you the great recipe of ‘Angel Biscuit.’  It’s an aa good recipe for new brides and beginner cooks because it’s fail-proof. It’ll always rise. It will put to an end your constant search for the perfect recipe.  Lard makes this recipe work and gives it a lightness that doesn’t come with butter but also ensures that the flavor of the buttermilk is not overpowered. The recipe’s three types of raising agents: baking powder, baking soda, and yeast give it a soft, fluffy-textured which is half-bread and half-soft roll.

Recipe Ingredients:

          Ingredients

 US Measurement

 Metric Measurement

Lard, chilled (or shortening)1 cup224g
Water warmed to body temp.¼ cup60ml
Dried yeast, fast action¼ ounce7g
All-purpose flour, plain5 cups720g
Sugar, granulated¼ cup44.75g
Baking powder, homemade1 tablespoon15g
Baking soda1 teaspoon5g
Fine sea salt1 tablespoon15g
Buttermilk, room temperature2 cups480g
Butter, unsalted2 tablespoons30g

Recipe Instructions:

  • Begin by lining a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Measure The Lard:

  • Measure out the required quantity of lard using a digital scale.
  • Cut the lard into large cubes; put it into a bowl and place back in the refrigerator for it to retain its firmness until when needed.

Note To Baker: Coldness helps it to cut into dry ingredients without melting into the butter. Melting Butter is key to a soft texture.

Activate The Yeast:

  • Have some tap water warmed to just above body temperature (100 degrees F or 38.7 degrees C ) using an instant thermometer.
  • Measure out the needed quantity of water into a small bowl.
  • Put in the dried, fast action yeast, mix with your finger and leave to stand for 5 minutes for complete dissolution.

Mix Dry Ingredients:

  • Gather the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder (homemade if possible), baking soda and fine sea salt into one large bowl.

Note To Baker: The preservative, aluminum sulfate, contained in commercial baking powder imparts an unappetizing metallic taste to baked products mostly noticeable in quick bread, scones, and muffins. To avoid this occurrence, it is advisable to use homemade baking powder which can be prepared using the recipe beneath this write-up.

  • Whisk them together for about 30 seconds to be sure that all the ingredients are properly mixed up.

Coat The Lard:

  • Collect the lard from the refrigerator and toss it into the flour mixture.
  • Lightly coat the lard cubes with the flour using either a wooden spoon or a pastry cutter.

Note To Baker: This checks a situation where the lard sticks to the pastry cutter or your hands.

Combine The Lard And The Dry Ingredients

  • Quickly combine the cold lard and the dry ingredients using either a pastry cutter which is faster or your hands. Keep pushing down and twisting the cutter until you have a mixture of both large-sized pea pieces as well as breadcrumb-sized pieces.

Combine The Milk & Yeast-Water Mixture:

  • Pour the buttermilk into a glass measuring jug, add the yeast-water mixture that you set aside earlier into it; give it a quick stir for proper combination.

Knead In The Milk & Yeast Mixture:

  • Using the end of a wooden spatula, make a large well in the flour mixture; pour in the buttermilk and yeast mixture, stir until the mixture just combines– you should still have a very sticky mixture.
  • Now, lightly flour both the work surface and your hands; transfer the dough to the floured work surface.
  • Knead delicately for 6-8 times until it thoroughly combines – the dough should still have a measure of stickiness so be careful not to overwork it.

Roll & Cut:

  • Split the dough into two parts and set one-half aside; leave the second-half still on the work surface.
  • Using a rolling pin and your hands, form the dough into a disc of about ½-inch thick with a 2½-inch drinking glass or a round biscuit cutter, cut out the biscuits.

Transfer, Cover & Proof:

  • Move cut-out biscuits to the parchment-lined baking sheet, making sure you leave a bit of room, about 1-inch, around each biscuit so that they have room to rise.
  • Loosely cover the baking sheet with a cling film; let the biscuits rise for about 40-45 minutes.
  • With your oven preheated to 450 degrees F or 230 degrees C (Note To Baker: 210 degrees C, if you are using a fan oven), bake until the tops of the biscuits are a golden brown (should be in 10 minutes).

Test For Doneness:

  • You may test for doneness by checking for when the biscuits’ color turns to a golden brown.
  • You may also carefully touch their tops as you press down slightly – if it pops back up, then it is done.
  • Once the biscuits are out of the oven, brush their tops with a good salted, melted butter.

Note To Baker: This final step makes a whole lot of difference and should not be ignored.

Serving:

  • This Recipe makes 30 half-inch biscuits.

How Best To Serve The Dish:

  • They are best enjoyed hot out of the oven.
  • Can also be served warm at room temperature.
  • You can freeze, and reheat to serve
  • Can be served with country ham and a fried egg on top.
  • Can be whipped up for a holiday meal.
  • It’s ideal for parties and brunch.
  • You can serve it with a smear of Brooke’s Mustard Dip and a slice of country ham for a delicious breakfast sandwich.
  • It can be served with soup on a Sunday roast.
  • Some people like it warm with mild, melted cheese and a few slices of good country ham.
  • It’s equally good when split in half and served with butter, honey or jam.

How To Store

Baked Biscuits:

  • Allow the baked biscuits to cool awhile on the baking sheet before transferring them to the cooling racks; do not place them too close together to avoid them sticking together.
  • Stack them on each other only when they have completely
  • Tightly wrap the biscuits in heavy-duty aluminum foils/freezer wraps or package them in freezer bags.
  • Label the package with the recipe name and date.
  • Store at zero degrees F or lower.

Unbaked Biscuits/Dough:

Recipe – Golden Raisin and Nut Scones

Advertisements

Over time, a scone is said to have gotten its origin from the Scottish bread popularly called bannock; some say it originated from The Stone of Destiny – where Scottish kings were crowned, while others argue it is related to the Dutch word – Shcoonbrot, which is translated as “fine white bread.” Few claim the name was gotten from a German word – Sconbrot, translated as “beautiful bread.” However, wherever it must have originated from, we don’t care. What matters is that everyone loves it.

What is a scone?

Scones are quick bread or cake/biscuit-like pastries that are baked in a moderately hot oven which makes the dough set quickly and given a golden brown top.

Cooking – What Is A Scone?

Scones are an essential component of a classic English afternoon tea. They are made with wheat or oatmeal and are baked on sheet pans. They are usually slightly sweet and are sometimes glazed with an egg wash. In the United States, scones are often part of a traditional cream tea. This article will give you an overview of this British food. Also, be sure to check out our other scones articles! Hopefully, this article will answer your question!

Scones have been around for centuries and originated in Scotland. They were made from a loaf of bread cut into triangles in ancient times. Today, scones are made with a rectangular pan, and they can be either sweet or savory. They are commonly served with tea or coffee. In the TV show, The Scone Detectives, a spirited argument ensues about which type of scone is right for you.

A scone is a baked good similar to a pancake but is made of wheat and oatmeal. Scones are often lightly sweetened and glazed with egg wash. They are a classic part of a cream tea but are different from teacakes, savory cakes containing yeast. They were chosen by the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland as their representatives to Cafe Europe. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the first recorded scone recipe is from 1513.

While scone recipes vary, the basic ingredients of a scone are similar. The most common scone recipe involves butter, flour, milk, and eggs. The butter does not need to be melted when used but is blended with the flour with pastry knives to form small lumps. Next, the buttermilk and eggs are added all at once, and the dough is ready to be rolled out on a lightly floured surface.

Scones are generally made with eggs and sweet cream. The recipe for a scone is very simple and requires no baking powder. It is made with oat flour, wheat flour, and barley flour and is baked in pans. Historically, a scone was a king’s capital. It has many variations, and the name of the original Scottish town, Dundee, is the most common.

Scones are biscuit-shaped baked goods with a buttermilk and cream filling. While scone recipes are generally round in shape, they can also be square or triangle in shape. The dough is typically brushed with egg and milk and then sprinkled with sugar. Once baked, scones are then sliced and served with jam or heavy cream. If you’d like to learn more about the origins of scones, read our scones history.

A scone is a sweet, moist, and light scone that contains eggs, milk, and butter. The dough must be crumbly and light in texture. Some scones are softer than others, but they’re still very delicious.

Scone is derived from the classical Scottish word schoon, which means “clean.” The word schoon also comes from the Dutch and German words schone and schokoh.

It is best served with a cup of tea or coffee. The scones in the United States are often eaten without the accompaniment of jam. Despite this, they can be dry.

Scones are often made with butter or other ingredients. However, a scone can be made with either type. It is best to use a buttermilk-based scone mix, a popular option in the United States. This type of scone is lighter than a biscuit, so butter is used to make it. If you’re making a scone, you can add raisins, currants, or any other type of topping you prefer.

Which Countries Commonly Eat Scones?

If you love scones, you may be wondering which countries commonly eat them. Scones are a popular treat that has a long history in the UK.
