A slightly sweeter variation on a favorite.

Clabber is an old fashioned word for buttermilk and buttermilk is the dairy liquid of choice in traditional soda bread. This recipe makes a majestic, lean, mean tasty soda bread that is great with cheese or sliced cold corned beef. I love it with tea in the evenings.

Stuff one in your lunch tote or take one on your commute. You can also add a touch of ground flax seed and use all canola oil if you prefer.

Makes a great gift

Here is a delightful little rum and fruit pound cake that is one of my favorites. It is festive, buttery, moist and flavor-infused. It is a great hostess or holiday gift. I generally triple this recipe and make about 6 small loaves as gifts. If you don’t want to use spirits, use orange juice or brewed tea instead.  

These luscious muffins are tiny coffeecakes in a muffin shape.You can substitute sour milk, use buttermilk powder, yogurt, or buttermilk instead of the sour cream.

So many cranberry scone recipes! And yet, each one is different. This makes an exceptional tender, flaky, crisp outer, soft inside, scone. These  would also be good with blueberries with the cranberries (and currants or not - either way) but it is a must at Thanksgiving. Make them small to serve as a side bread or dust with sugar before baking, to serve as dessert. Offer with pumpkin ice-cream and bourbon-spiked creme anglaise to spruce them up a notch.

A jaunty tea bread for any time or especially nice during the autumn and winter holidays. Red cranberries, tart apples dot this moist, buttery loaf.

Quick bread time and what a nice version! Apples and pecans in a buttery little loaf that bakes up golden. A dusting of sugar before baking and some slivers of apple inset in the batter makes this Cape Cod vacation pretty. Make two of these and wrap one up as a gift in a new tea-towel in a basket of apples.

No yeast, fresh berries, a bright, tangy taste by the slice. This quick bread is perfect spring baking – it is a jaunty quick bread, with a moist crumb, bejeweled with chopped strawberries which dart through it. A gorgeous cream cheese fondant drizzle crowns it (but it is fine without it).
