This was a recipe I saved from my mother's recipe box. Many of them just are clippings from magazines or newspaper's over the years. This said it was the $25,000.00 dollar winner, but I'm sorry I don't know what contest it is from. I've made this recipe many times and my family just loves it. I omit the pimento-stuffed olives and the slivered almonds in the biscuits, not because I don't love them - because I do, but because I can't get my daughter to eat them. If you love baked beans and ground beef, you'll love this recipe! It makes quite a bit so we always have leftovers the next day. It reheats nicely.
This cake is very rich and not for fat conscience people. It's wonderful to serve with your favorite home made ice cream. I make this only as a once in awhile special dessert. I copied this recipe from a newspaper a very long time ago and found it in the newspaper again just the other day! Guess time has only made this cake better. You want to make sure you don't over bake as the cake is intended to be very moist and fudgy.
I call these Grandma Love's biscuits, but really they came off of the Clabber Girl Baking Powder can, although it is not there anymore. Grandma always served these on Christmas morning or with gravy at Grandpa's request. Twenty years later, they are still my favorite biscuit.
This recipe appeared on the Quaker Oats box in 1908 and again from 1909 to 1913. It's hearty and grainy, delicious topped with cheese, cinnamon-sugar butter, or served with soup. Original directions didn't specify an oven temperature, so I selected 450.
This recipe comes from the package of a local product...The Bouchard Family Farm Acadian Light Buckwheat flour from the St. John River Valley in Maine. Info on the bag include...buckwheat is a herb not a grain...a great source of protein, iron, potassium and Vitamin B. Who knew!!
