RAISED WAFFLES

4 servings

1/2 cup warm water
1 package dry yeast
2 cups milk, warmed
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon baking soda


USE A RATHER LARGE mixing bowl--the batter will rise to double its original volume. Put the water in the mixing bowl and sprinkle in the yeast. Let stand to dissolve for 5 minutes. Add the milk, butter, salt, sugar and flour to the yeast mixture and beat until smooth and blended. You can use a hand-rotary beater to get rid of the lumps. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let stand overnight at room temperature. Just before cooking the waffles, beat in the eggs, add the baking soda, and stir until well mixed. The batter will be very thin. Pour about 1/2-to-3/4 cup batter into a very hot waffle iron. Bake the waffles until they are golden and crisp. This batter will keep well for several days in the refrigerator.

REAL WHITE BREAD

2 servings

1/4 cup water, warm (approx. 105F)
1 package dry yeast
1 3/4 cups milk
2 tablespoons butter, softened
vegetable shortening, or oil
2 tablespoons sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
5 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, (or more)


POUR THE WARM WATER over the yeast. Stir well, and let stand to dissolve. Heat the milk, stirring, to the same temperature as the yeast, then pour it over the dissolved yeast. Add the butter (or shortening or oil), sugar, salt and 4 cups of the flour. Beat vigorously with a large spoon for at least 1 minute. Stir in enough of the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, to make a stiff but not dry dough. Dust the kneading surface with 1/4 cup of the reserved flour and turn the dough out onto it, cleaning the bowl completely with a rubber spatula. Knead the dough for 1 minute, sprinkling extra flour a little at a time as necessary, then let rest for 10 minutes. Resume kneading for about 6 to 8 minutes more, or until the dough is smooth and elastic. Put in a lightly greased bowl, cover and let rest in a warm place to rise for between 1 and 2 hours. When the dough has doubled in bulk, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and punch it down for a minute. Cut dough in half and pat each half into an oval the approximate length of your bread pan, which should be lightly greased. Put in the pan, cover with a damp towel and let rise for another 45 minutes to 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 350F and, when the bread is risen, put it in the oven. Bake for about 40-to-45 minutes in a glass pan, or 45-to-50 minutes in a metal pan. Makes 2 Loaves

SCALLION CAKES

10 servings

1 pound all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons sea salt, coarse-grain or kosher salt
5 scallions, coarsely chopped
5 tablespoons vegetable oil, (or more)


Place the flour in a mixing bowl. Sprinkle evenly with the baking powder and sugar. Mix with a wooden spoon. Add the water gradually, stirring and mixing with the wooden spoon. Knead the dough for 3-4 minutes. Cover it with a damp cloth and leave for half an hour, then knead again for 2-3 minutes. Divide the dough into ten portions and form into narrow strips 8-10 inches long. Flatten the strips with a rolling pin and ten bands of pancake thickness. Sprinkle each band with salt and then with chopped scallions. Roll the bands lengthwise into long double-thickness spaghetti-shaped strips. Hold one end of the strip and turn the other end around in circles until the concentric rings form themselves around the center into a spiral pancake. Flatten the pancake with the palm of the hand. Repeat until the dough has been made into ten spiral pancakes.

Heat the oil on the bottom of a large flat-bottomed frying pan. When hot, lift the handle of the frying pan so that the surface of the pan is evenly greased. Place the spiral pancakes on the surface of the pan. Fry over low heat for 2-1/2 to 3 minutes and turn the pancakes over. Repeat and fry gently until the pancakes are evenly browned on both sides.

SCOTCH PANCAKES

8 servings

1/4 pound plain white all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda, (bicarbonate of soda)
1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 ounce sugar
1 egg
1/4 pint milk, or cream


Sift the flour with the raising agents and stir in the sugar. Make a well in the centre and break the egg into it. Whisk the milk into the egg, then gradually incorporate the dry ingredients to make a very smooth, thick batter. Alternately, simply mix everything together in a food processor. If time permits let the batter stand for 30 minutes before cooking. Heat a griddle, bakestone or cast-iron frying pan until very hot - or cook direct on the hot plate of an Aga. Grease your chosen surface lightly with buttered paper, using just enough fat to prevent the pancakes from sticking. Using a large metal spoon held point downward, drop a few small rounds of batter on to the hot surface. Space them well apart. Cook over steady heat until bubbles rise to the surface and the underside of the pancakes are browned - about 2 minutes. Loosen them gently with a palette knife, then flip them over and cook for about 1 minute longer.

Makes about 16 pancakes.

SOURDOUGH PEASANT BREAD

1 servings

1 1/8 cups sourdough starter
1/2 cup water
1 1/4 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups bread flour
1 1/2 teaspoons yeast


This is for the medium sized loaf which, depending on how active my starter is at the moment, will rise to the top of my Hitachi B101.

If I want an extra sour loaf, I will use the starter two or three days after feeding. This produces a shorter loaf with a heavier texture.

For a light and fluffy loaf, I feed the starter first, then let it sit on the counter for 8 to 10 hours before using. I make sure it is very foamy when I put it in the B/M.

SOURDOUGH SAMS

4 servings

1/2 cup active sourdough starter
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons shortening
2 cups unbleached flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 each large egg
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup buttermilk, or sour milk


Sift dry ingredients, stir into liquid, roll out and cut with regular donut cutter. Then heat some oil in a deep fryer to 390 degrees F and fry. Makes about 17 Doughnuts with holes. Just before serving dust with powdered or cinnamon sugar. NOTE: These doughnuts are virtually greasless. And if you want you can make several batches at a time and freeze. They keep well and to me taste after a while in the freezer. Take out as many as needed and thaw and put sugar on or eat plain.

SPINACH & STILTON PANCAKES

18 servings

FOR THE PANCAKES
2 ounces buckwheat flour
2 ounces plain white flour
2 eggs
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 pint milk
1/4 pint water
FOR THE FILLING
2 pounds fresh spinach
1 onion
3 ounces Stilton cheese
2 ounces walnut pieces
butter
1 garlic, slivered
FOR THE SAUCE
1 ounce butter
1 ounce plain white flour
1/2 pint stock
1/4 pint double cream
2 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard, (heaped)


Make a smooth batter with the flours, eggs, milk and water, then stir in the cool melted butter for extra richness and to prevent sticking during cooking. Use a 6-inch pan and make thin pancakes in the usual way, but be sure to stir the batter vigorously in between making each pancake or all the buckwheat flour will sink to the bottom of the mixture. If preparing ahead, cool the pancakes then stack them (interleaved with greaseproof paper) and wrap in a foil parcel.

To make the filling, wash and boil or steam the spinach until just tender. Chop it and squeeze out all the liquid (save the juices for a soup). Chop the onion finely and sweat it in a knob of butter until it's deliciously soft. Stir in the spinach, season with a little salt, lots of pepper and the garlic. Toast the walnuts and crumbled Stilton into the spinach mixture to give it savoury flavour and bite. Stuff the pancakes with the mixture, roll them up neatly and pile them into a lightly buttered gratin dish. Cover with foil and heat through in the oven for 25-30 minutes at 400 F (200 C) gas mark 6.

Make a smooth rich sauce with the butter, flour, stock (preferably good chicken stock) and cream. Let it simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring once or twice, then season with the cheese, mustard and salt and pepper. If the sauce is made ahead, reheat it in a double-boiler for serving, then pour it over the dish of pancakes just before bringing to table.

SWEET ICED CHRISTMAS BREAD

2 servings

2 1/2 cups unbleached flour, more flour may be necessary
1 cup milk, warm (105F to 115F)
1 package active dry yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup glaced cherry
1/2 cup mixed candied fruits
1/2 cup dates, chopped
1/2 cup walnuts, or pecans coarsely chopped
GLAZE
1 egg, beaten, mixed with
1 teaspoon milk, or water
DECORATION
7 cherries, halves of glaced
7 pecan or walnut halves
ICING
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
water


This festive bread is perfect for gifts. The recipe can be doubled and freezes well for up to 2 months. A fermented yeast "starter" gives this bread a full flavor, but you can omit the process if you're in a hurry.

PREHEAT OVEN TO 350F. In a food processor or mixer bowl, mix 1 cup of the flour, the warm milk, yeast and sugar. If time allows, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and leave the dough at room temperature to ferment and bubble for 2 hours. If time does not allow, proceed to add the egg, salt and butter. Add the rest of the flour, 1/2 cup at a time, to make a soft dough. Knead the dough in the food processor, mixer or on a floured board until elastic and smooth. Mix the cherries, candied fruit, dates and nuts together and fold and knead 1/3 of the mixture at a time into the dough until well mixed. Place in an oiled plastic bag or oiled bowl. Turn to coat. Seal or cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 3/4 to 1 hour. Punch down. Knead briefly. Grease a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan. Form the dough into an oval approximately the length of the pan, and place in pan. Let rise again until doubled. Brush the loaves with the egg glaze. Bake on the middle shelf about 40-to-50 minutes until nicely browned. Cover with foil if the loaf browns too rapidly. Cool on a wire rack. TO MAKE ICING, mix confectioners' sugar, oil, almond extract and enough water to make a smooth consistency. Brush cooled bread with icing. Top with the candied cherries and nuts. Makes 2 Loaves

This is the tassie recipe from the back of the Mrs. T's Tart Tamper I got at Lechter's (discount housewares store). The tamper is only $2.89 and well worth it! It makes perfect little tarts quickly every time. Oh, and you'll need a mini-muffin pan or two. (My nieces and nephews love the little bite sized cranberry nutbread gems I bring for them at Thanksgiving.)

TASSIE DOUGH

Mix butter and margarine well, then add flour and mix to a soft dough. Chill at least 1 hour or overnight.

WELSH CAKES

15 servings

1 pound flour, self-raising
2 ounces butter
4 ounces sugar
4 ounces raisins, or Sultanas
2 eggs
1/3 pint water


On sale in every Welsh bakery, these are one of the great delights of teatime. They are easy to make. The Welsh use a flat iron "planc" (a griddle) to bake the cakes, which are cooked on top heat like Scotch pancakes. A heavy frying pan will do fine if you don't have a griddle. Makes 15-18 cakes.

Rub the fat into the flour and add the fruit and sugar. Mix the water with the eggs and use to make a soft dough just a little firmer than that for the scones. Tip on to a well-floured board and roll out to a thickness of 1/2-inch. Cut out circles with a 2-1/2-inch shell-edged cutter.

Heat a planc or heavy iron frying pan - get the heat up into it gently and thoroughly, and do not let it overheat. If the pan is not well-seasoned or non-stick, slick it with a little butter or vegetable oil.

Bake the cakes on the pan, turning them once, until well-risen and lightly browned. They will take about 5 minutes each side. Eat hot or cold, with or without salty butter, but always with a cup of piping-hot tea.

WILTSHIRE LARDY CAKE

1 servings

1/2 pound white bread flour
1 teaspoon easy-blend yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 ounce lard, melted
1/4 pint warm water, (or milk & water)
TO FINISH
1/4 pound lard, pure pork, diced
lard, for greasing the pan
cinnamon
allspice
Demerara sugar
MIX TOGETHER THE FOLLOWING
1 ounce Sultanas, chopped
1 ounce raisins, & currants chopped
1 ounce candied peel, chopped


Using a food-mixer or processor or your hands, mix and knead the dough. Cover it with oiled polythene and leave to rise until doubled in size; this will take about 1 hour in a warm place.

Knock back the dough, knead it again briefly and roll out to an oblong. Mix together 1-1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon ground allspice and 2 ounces sugar and sprinkle half of this mixture over the dough. Add half the dried fruits and half the diced lard. Roll up the dough, like a swiss roll, give it a quarter turn and roll it out to an oblong again. Sprinkle with sugar and spices, dried fruits and fat exactly as before. Then roll up and roll out the dough to an oblong once again, but this time make it the right size to fit a shallow baking or roasting tin about 7-inches square. Grease the tin and put the dough into it, pressing it well into the corners. Cover and leave to prove (rise) until the dough is light, puffy and well risen.

Score the top of the dough with a diamond pattern, brush with melted lard and sprinkle on 1 ounce of sugar. Bake at 425 F (220 C) gas mark 7 until cooked to a golden brown and smelling delicious, 35-40 minutes.

Cool the cake briefly in the tin so that the melted fat is re-absorbed, then serve it while still warm, cut into large sticky fingers. Makes 1 cake

YOGURT RYE BREAD

1 servings

1 1/2 cups warm water
2 packages dry yeast
1 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup 9 grain cereal, 9-grain cereal+
1 cup bran flakes cereal
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
4 tablespoons butter, softened
1 cup rye flour
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, (or more)
1 tablespoon fennel seeds
2 tablespoons cornmeal
GLAZE
1 egg yolk, mixed with
1 tablespoon water


IN A LARGE MIXING BOWL, stir the warm water and yeast together, and let stand for a minute or so to dissolve. Stir in the yogurt, 9-grain cereal, bran flakes, salt, butter, rye flour and 1 1/2 cups of the all-purpose flour. Beat vigorously until well blended. Add enough all-purpose flour to make a manageable dough, then turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for a few minutes, then let rest for 10 minutes. Resume kneading for a good 10 minutes, until the dough is elastic, sprinkling on a little more all-purpose flour as necessary to keep it from being too sticky. Knead in the fennel seeds. Place in a large greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap or a clean damp cloth, and let rise until double in bulk. Punch the dough down and divide into 3 equal parts. Roll each piece into a long round strand about 3/4-inch thick, making them all the same length. Pinch the strands together at one end, and braid. When you've finished braiding, pinch both ends together firmly and tuck them under a bit, to give the loaf a neat look. Transfer to a baking sheet that's been sprinkled with the cornmeal, cover loosely, and let rise again until double in bulk. Brush with the egg-yolk mixture, and bake in a preheated 350F oven for 45 minutes. Remove from the sheet and cool on a rack. Makes 1 Loaf.
