Molasses buns/bread/cake

Post by windwalkingwolf » Mon Dec 04, 2017 4:02 am

Original recipe:
3 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp rounded baking powder
1 tsp rounded baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon optional
1 tsp freshly ground nutmeg optional
3/4 cup cold butter cut in cubes
1 1/2 cup raisins (light or dark your preference)
1/2 cup fancy molasses
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
Instructions
In a food processor or in a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Cut in or pulse in in the butter until the mixture resembles a fine meal.
Remove to a large bowl and stir in the raisins.
Make a well in the center of this mixture.
Mix together the molasses, milk and vanilla.
Pour into the well and mix only enough to form a dough ball.
On a floured surface, roll to 1 inch thickness and cut out buns with biscuit cutter. You may need a little more flour on top as well to prevent sticking to the rolling pin.
Place in a parchment lined 9x13 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. Baking time may vary a little depending on the size of your biscuit cutter.
This recipe makes about 12 tea buns.

Recipe with my own modifications (more better lol)
4 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
3 tsp rounded baking powder
3 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 cup cold bacon fat :D
1cup fancy molasses
1 cup milk

Instructions
In a food processor or in a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Cut in or pulse in in the bacon fat until the mixture resembles a course meal.
Mix together the molasses and milk.
Realize the rest of the instructions are too much work when tipsy at midnight, toss ingredients into bread machine, set on rapid bake dark crust, and hope for the best. Delicious! If you don't want it dense and heavy, use less molasses and more milk.
