Makes a great gift

Here is a delightful and sophisticated 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.  For the fruit, feel free to swap in dried sour cherries and dried mango bits instead of the candied fruit. The cake itself is the real star.

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.

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).

Big, Fat, Crusty, Golden, Amazing – you want more incentive?
Talk to Tony Robbins. These are the best biscuits Bar None. If you make these bigger, they are a great biscuit to use in a McBiscuit kinda breakfast sandwich.

Pineapple, a touch of rum and macadamia nuts upgrade this classic. An exceptionally moist and flavor packed banana bread with an added sumptuous glaze.

This is the one to turn to for quick pancakes, scones, and my version of Red Lobster’s famed garlic biscuits. You can use butter in this recipe instead of shortening or half and half but then keep the mix in the freezer. Use famed Saco Buttermilk Blend for these.


A zesty change from traditional soda bread.
