Ingredients

  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons sugar

  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter diced
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk see note if you don't have buttermilk

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375. If using stoneware, place stoneware in the oven while it's heating up.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Work in butter by hand. Make sure to use your fingers to mix it into the dry ingredients.
  3. Add in the raisins and buttermilk and combine together with your hands. Pat out the dough and form into a disk about 1 inch thick.
  4. Divide the disk into 6 equal pieces and roll into 2-inch rounds. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 to 18 minutes.

If you do not have buttermilk, grab some low-fat milk and vinegar (I use apple cider vinegar). Combine 3/4 cup milk with 1 teaspoon vinegar. Stir and let sit for 5 minutes.

Holiday Baking with Land o’ Lakes Butter {Gingerbread Cake Recipe}

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This Land o’ Lakes butter shop and gingerbread recipe have been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and its client.

Gingerbread cake - This gingerbread cake is not only full of spices and yum, it's also not overly sweet. It goes great with a nice cup of coffee or a scoop of ice cream.The holidays are here and my kitchen is in full gear for all of the holiday baking that’s going to be done over the next two months. Luckily I stocked up on butter and the rest of my needed pantry staples so that I can whip up whatever I need when the time comes.

Since I’ve been hosting quite a few playdates I wanted to test out a great cake recipe that wasn’t too sweet. My husband and I love baking and the number one rule in our home (and a little inside joke with the husband) is that our fridge can never be without butter.

While we were at Walmart picking up a few crafting items for my daughter’s upcoming birthday I jokingly asked my husband if he was sure we had butter in the house. He sighed, rolled his eyes, and ran to go grab a 4-pack.  [Read more…]

Fueling Up For Black Friday with Delicious Pairings from Starbucks #DeliciousPairings #CBias

Starbucks Breakfast Blend and Blueberry Muffins

One thing I look forward to every year is shopping on Black Friday. It’s the one day of the year I get up super early and take advantage of all of the sales going on at my favorite stores. I make a plan, map out all of the details, and complete the rest of my Christmas shopping all in one day!

In order to have the energy to stay awake and function that early in the morning I need to fuel up before I head out. And time is usually not on my side so I look for something quick and easy that will taste great and keep me going until mid-morning when I meet the rest of my family.

When I headed out to Walmart this weekend to pick up a few essentials for Thanksgiving dinner I decided to grab some “fuel” for Friday morning as well.
