BUTTERY CHEDDAR SCONES

TSLCButterCheeseScone3

These little buttery scones are great as appetizers served with your favorite jams and jellies.  They go great with any kind of soup or with any meal, too. Good with coffee or milk.  They will keep several days in a cool place in an air tight container and can be reheated.

2 cups self-rising flour

1/2 cup self-rising cornmeal (You could use regular cornmeal)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon sugar

pinch cayenne or about 1/8 teaspoon

1 stick butter or 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons,  softened

2 eggs

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup buttermilk

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Sea salt, Optional

Whisk together flour, cornmeal, salt, sugar and cayenne in a large mixing bowl.  Cut the butter in small pieces and cut into the flour mixture until resembles coarse crumbs.  Add the eggs, sour cream and buttermilk and stir with spoon.  Fold in the cheddar cheese.  Place dough on a floured surface and roll out in a square.  You can cut out square scones with a pizza cutter or use a square biscuit cutter.  You can make large squares and cut in half to make triangle scones.  Place on a sprayed baking sheet and bake in 425 degree oven for 20 minutes.  Makes about 24 scones depending on size you make them.  Enjoy.

Note:  I use unsalted butter and brush the tops before cooking with a little melted butter then sprinkle with sea salt. The cornmeal makes them a little crunchy.

BEST BANANA BREAD EVER

Best Banana Bread Ever - TSLC (2)This is definitely my favorite banana bread.  Once you try this one, you will make it all the time.  My only problem with this bread is that I cannot leave it alone and could eat a loaf by myself.  This recipe was an experiment and it turned out to be our favorite banana bread ever.

2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 stick butter or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup, melted

1/2 cup white granulated sugar

1/3 cup sour cream

2 eggs

3 medium sized bananas, mashed

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Whisk together flour and baking soda in a large bowl and set aside.  Combine melted butter, sugar, sour cream, eggs, bananas and vanilla extract.  Stir together with a spoon.  Add to flour mixture and mix well with spoon.  Spray a 9 x 5 loaf pan with cooking spray and add batter to pan.

Swirl for Batter

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 cup chopped nuts, (pecans or walnuts), Optional

Combine and spread on top of the banana batter.  Take a knife and swirl into batter. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 65 to 70 minutes checking until done as ovens vary. It took mine 70 minutes to cook. Remove from oven and let cool. Drizzle on topping below.

Topping for Cooked Banana Bread

3/4 cup powdered sugar

3 tablespoons milk, more or less

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Whisk together and drizzle over cooled banana bread.

You can freeze this bread or reheat.  It keeps well for several days in a cool, dry place.  You can also refrigerate.  Makes one loaf.  Enjoy!
