Irish Soda Bread with Muesli

Irish Soda Bread with Muesli / Patty's Food

I’m not sure which came first-Irish Soda Bread with Muesli or  Three Fruit Marmalade- but they belong together and are definitely a match made in heaven.  Every year when Saint Patrick’s Day rolls around I’m usually good for baking a loaf or two of soda bread, but this year I did a little experimenting and […]

Buttermilk Pie with Pecan Crust from The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Dessert Cookbook

Buttermilk Pie with Pecan Crust / Patty's Food

I baked my first buttermilk pie from The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Dessert Cookbook.  I’ve always been curious to bake a buttermilk pie and not having a family recipe or tradition of buttermilk pie baking, I turned to this wonderful heirloom dessert cookbook for a delicious recipe.  Buttermilk pie has a unique flavor and the aroma […]

Blackberry Almond Buttermilk Cake

Blackberry Almond Buttermilk Cake / Patty's Food

I made 3 cakes with fruit yesterday morning and this blackberry almond buttermilk cake was hands down the winner.  Not that there was a contest or anything like that, it just worked out that this cake took the ‘cake’ for first prize in my mini morning bake-off.  This has been a crazy week for me, […]

Lemon Buttermilk Rhubarb Bundt Cakelets

Lemon Buttermilk Rhubarb Bundt Cake / Patty's Food

Are you ever tempted to purchase a somewhat useful but mostly cute ‘novelty’ cake pan? If my lemon buttermilk rhubarb bundt cakelets aren’t tempting enough to get you thinking mini cakes, consider these excerpts from the Williams-Sonoma site describing the Nordic Ware Mini Bundt Pans they offer for sale- “Bake up six perfectly sculpted little […]

blueberry scone muffins

blueberry scone muffins

  I found baby blueberries at the Santa Rosa Farmers Market from a  grower out of Sebastopol who grows 10 different varieties of blueberries, of course they’re not all ripe at the same time but wouldn’t it be fun to see and taste all those different types of blueberries at once.  This morning they were […]

Overnight Buttermilk Pancakes with Spiced Roasted Rhubarb & Strawberry Compote for French Fridays

Lately I’ve been thinking about things I like to eat, like pancakes, no big news flash here. When our children were younger and living at home I made more pancakes but the truth is that like Disney movies which I also like and saw more of when our children were younger, I miss making pancakes. […]

Chocolate Banana Marble Bread

Saturday morning I was having a good old time whipping up this chocolate banana marble bread that is really more like cake than a quick bread.  I made a banana puree in my food processor instead of the usual mashing of the bananas that go into a banana bread.  I used cake flour instead of […]

Sage and Goat Cheese Corn Bread

I was checking on my herb garden when I saw the sage flowering and I knew it was the perfect time to try this corn bread recipe. Another excellent recipe from one of my favorite cookbooks, ‘The Herbal Kitchen’ by Jerry Traunfeld. The sun came out this afternoon and I hope it’s here to stay […]
