Adapted from the 1930s edition of Joy of Cooking. Simple to make and so much better than store-bought.
1. Put the warm water in a small bowl. Add yeast, stir and set aside for 10 minutes, until yeast is dissolved.
2. In a large bowl combine hot water, scalded (i.e. heated to just before boiling) milk, sugar and salt and stir until dissolved. Add yeast and stir well. Slowly beat in 1 cup of flour. Cover bowl with a damp cloth and let the dough rise in a warm place for 1 1/2 hours or until mixture has collapsed back into itself.
3. Beat the softened butter into the mixture. Mix or knead in the remaining cup of flour.
4. Turn dough onto a surface that you’ve covered in cornmeal (or flour.) Pat the dough flat and round until it’s 3/4 inch thick. Cut the dough into rounds with a biscuit cutter or tin can.
5. Fry the rounds of dough on a hot, well-buttered griddle for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until browned.
6. Split with tines of a fork to achieve proper texture. Serve toasted with plenty of butter.
This Low Fat Banana, Date & Nut Bread may be low on fat, but it’s not low on flavor! It’s perfect to enjoy with that morning tea or coffee. This recipe makes two loaves, one to eat now, and one to put in the freezer to enjoy later.
Better than Starbucks makes!
