Simple Scones

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2013
Fantastic! For those who do not have large food processors: I cut my butter into little slices/pats before freezing. Next day, mixed my dry ingredients in my stand mixer; diced my frozen butter (honestly takes less than 2 min; it doesn't need to be perfect but just small bits of butter) with a knife and slowly mixed it into the dry. Used my hand to squeeze it together a bit more and followed the rest of the recipe as is. Not too much clean up and I added cranberries and orange zest and they were wonderful - not too sweet!

Quick Lemon Poppy Seed Bread

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
Excellent recipe. Modifications I made: - 1/2cup oil = 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce - 1 pkg lemon pudding mix = 1 pkg vanilla pudding mix (no lemon pudding available) - 1 cup water = 3/4 cup water + juice of 2 freshly squeezed lemons I also added fresh finely grinded lemon zest and a bit more poppy seed. To give it an extra kick, I layered almond slices on top of the bread for the last 3-5 minutes of baking time to give it a nutty crust. Overall, this cake/bread is good because it is extremely moist, not too sweet and a really great simple foundation for a wide variety of modifications you can use to "spice" it up - a cream cheese frosting, a glaze etc etc.
