I love to cook, and many of my family loves cooking too, but we all have our own little Twists on recipes and that's what I'm here to share with you, My Twists on some great recipes that make them even more tasty.
Some are new some are old favorites but I put time and love into everything I make and write about.
Ingredients: 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 tablespoons brown sugar 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 3 tablespoons butter 2 eggs 3/4 cup buttermilk 1/3 cup raisins
Directions: In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter until crumbly. In a small bowl, whisk 1 egg and buttermilk. Stir into flour mixture just until moistened. Fold in raisins.
Knead on a floured surface for 1 minute. Shape into a round loaf; place on a greased baking sheet. Cut a 1/4-in.-deep cross in top of loaf. Beat remaining egg; brush over loaf.
Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 6-8 servings.
