Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Once zucchini come into season, they try to take over. They overrun gardens, markets and refrigerators. Fortunately, they are very versatile and can be prepared in a variety of ways. You can add them to all kinds of savory dishes, from sides of roasted vegetables to soups. And, just like carrots (and lettuce!), zucchini has a mild enough flavor and texture that it can be ...

Lemon Coconut Bread

Lemon Coconut Bread

One of my favorite quickbread recipes is the Coconut Bread from bills, Bill Granger‘s restaurant in Sydney, Australia. It’s one of those recipes that works so well as-is that I am never really tempted to stray from making the recipe just as it is written. So, when I had the idea to add some lemon flavor into the bread for a really bright and spring-like ... Read More »

White Whole Wheat Biscuits

White Whole Wheat Biscuits

A simple biscuit is such a great addition to any breakfast or dinner. Most biscuits I come across are made with white flour, either an all purpose flour or a cake flour (or other low-protein flour) in the hopes of producing the most tender biscuit. While I would never turn down a perfectly made biscuit, it is nice to know that you can still make ... Read More »

Skillet Scones (Soda Bread Farls)

Skillet Scones

Soda bread farls are flat breads that are made from the same dough as Irish soda bread, but are cooked in a skillet or on a griddle. They’re triangular and made by shaping the bread dough into a disc and cutting it into quarters before cooking, then cooking each piece individually. The idea is that it is easier to whip up a bread at a ... Read More »

Muffin Biscotti

Most muffin recipes make a dozen muffins. Sometimes I can get through the whole dozen – with a little help, of course – and sometimes I just can’t. Leftover muffins are usually good for a day or two, but most don’t hold up well longer than that. One solution is to freeze them when they are fresh and defrost them when you want to eat ...

Whole Wheat Popovers

You don’t need a popover pan to make popovers. A muffin tin will work perfectly well, even though you will only need to use 6 of the muffin. The only real reason to have a popover pan is that it gives you a good incentive to make popovers more often. I know this to be true because I got one not too long ago and ... Read More »

Apricot, Orange and Chocolate Chip Loaf

Apricot, Orange and Chocolate Chip Loaf

At first glance, you might not think that chocolate and apricots go together – or, at least, several of my tasters seemed to have this opinion when I brought this quickbread out. They were converted to the combination immediately after their first bite (at which time I pointed out that chocolate-dipped dried apricots are actually quite common). Fruit and chocolate make a great combination in ... Read More »

Peanut Butter Swirl Banana Bread

Peanut Butter Swirl Banana Bread

It is fairly well known that Elvis’s favorite food was a deep fried peanut butter and banana sandwich. The anniversary of Elvis Presley’s birthday is January 8th, and it’s the perfect time for fans (whether you’re fans of The King’s music or just of food) to try out an Elvis-inspired treat that uses both peanut butter and bananas. My hat tip is a banana bread ... Read More »
