These savoury muffins have a delicate taste of fresh green asparagus paired with black pepper and sour cream. I've made these for my daddy's birthday and thought they were great! Very unusual for a muffin, but very tasty! I hope you'll like them, too.
Another recipe from my Great Aunt's collection. She clipped this from the Chicago Tribune on July 5,1972, where it had won the weekly "$5 Favorite Recipe Prize." Makes a small batch. While the original version called for only 2 Tbsp of flour, I found they needed a bit more. These are very eggy pancakes - their texture and taste is quite different from a more floury pancake. They can be a little tricky to turn- make sure you keep the heat low enough not to burn them, and wait to flip until the surface really is riddled with air bubbles. Recipe doubles well.
Pure comfort food! Wonderful addition to a large breakfast or brunch. Delicious anytime. Best when served warm. Note the recipe calls for sharp cheddar but medium or mild cheddar could be used. Do not use American cheese or processed cheese food, such as Velveeta, because they will not work in this recipe.
Unfortunately I cannot take credit for these delicious muffins. This came from an old TOH magazine where someone had written in for this muffin recipe that they had tried at a restaurant called Curly Maple Resturaunt. These are perfectly moist and the kids gobble them up.
Cute and simple to prepare in a snap for a dinner party. These look really nice when they are baked and have a nice aroma. I have also used a Rosemary Lime Vinaigrette in this which was wonderful. Adapted from an old issue of Southern Living.
On the 3rd Thursday in April we in Iceland celebrate the 1st day of summer - if it is snow, rain or sun. It is a national bank holiday and my h2b wears short trousers that day - snow, rain or sun. Lummur are simmilar to pancakes but the dough is thicker. We make them round and sized like paddies. I like them with smoked salmon and fresh slices of cucumber, any type of cheese, whipped cream and strawberries, my favorite jam or just plain. They are best fresh and still warm but the keep quite well and you can take them with you. I have not tried freezing them but it should be ok.
Onion, Rosemary, Sage and Thyme flavor these biscuits making theme wonderful for the Holiday table.
Also great for Thanksgiving because these biscuits can be made ahead and frozen up to a week ahead. When ready to serve, thaw, wrap in foil, and heat in a 325º oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
This is my grandmother's recipe which I have adapted slightly - my Mum also makes this regularly! There is no fat, butter or oil in this lovely, moist Tea Bread, making it a treat that can be enjoyed on a regular basis. Feel free to use your favourite tea, I often make this with Earl Grey and Lapsang Souchong. Also make sure that the fruit soaks for at least 12 hours - that's what plumps up the fruit and keeps this Tea Bread so moist. I have never felt the need to add spices, the taste of the tea and the fruit is tasty enough. This makes two loaves - they keep well in a tin or can be frozen with great success.
