Irish Soda Bread, American Style

      This is my favorite recipe for Irish soda bread that I have used with much success and many compliments. I remember  making 15 or 20 of these at a time for fund-raisers and taking orders for St. Patrick’s Day. It is not dry, not bland, there’s just a hint of sweetness and there are lots of raisins and caraway seeds. Americans seem…

Zucchini Carrot Apple Walnut Loaf Bread

   “A moist zucchini bread base with added grated carrots, diced apples, and walnuts topped with a cream cheese and butter frosting.  The flavors and textures of the fruit and vegetables in this bread make a combination that is really delectable.  I am partial to the lighter colored, mildly spiced zucchini breads, so there is just a touch of cinnamon.  I wanted to accent the fruit…

To reheat the buns, microwave…

Blueberry Scones

  “Blueberry Scones made my way, with a blueberry overload, and the American way, sweet and fluffy, almost like a muffin but not quite. A scone really is a taste between a muffin and a biscuit,  but this leans more towards a muffin. The top has a bit of a crunch to it from the milk and sugar. I think Americans like their scones a little…

Stuffed Apple Raisin Sticky Bun Ring

  “An easy, delicious sticky bun recipe made with biscuit dough, apples and raisins. This comes together with just a few minutes of fun preparation really. It is even extra fast if you leave out the apples and raisins and just use the rolls of dough, but I like the additional fruit mixed into the dough. My technique is to make little stuffed oval puffs…

Cranberry Orange Scones

“This is my own version of cranberry scones with lots of orange zest.   I like my scones the American way, sweet and soft.  Europeans prefer a drier and less sweet scone. This is soft and yummy bursting with plenty of real cranberries. A very nice scone for the fall holidays.  Great served warm or cold.     Enjoy!” Servings 16   Bake Time: 23 – 25…
