It’s that time of year again when I start thinking about what I am going to cook for Thanksgiving. But instead of probably thinking about the main course my first thought goes to what kind of bread should I make. This year I have found a recipe that I am going to try. It is from the Two Peas and Their Pod blog and it is called Buttermilk Biscuit Bread. Here is the recipe:
Buttermilk Biscuit Bread
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/3 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
- Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and baking soda. Blend egg and buttermilk together, and add all at once to the flour mixture. Mix just until moistened. Stir in butter. Pour into prepared pan.
- Bake for 65 to 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the bread comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Wrap in foil for several hours, or overnight, for best flavor.
It looks easy enough and it sounds like you could make it ahead of time which I really like. If you like this recipe, it is available in the bread display by the cooking neighborhood in the west wing of the library. If you have trouble finding it, just ask any librarian and they will be happy to help you. So, check out the cooking neighborhood, the bread display and pick up some great recipes while you are there. Happy cooking!!
