Staff of Life continued

Quite soon I will have run out of bread alternative ideas and will have to bake a batch of my usual loaves. But just one more idea here: the mixture for my usual hot biscuits, but instead of making them individual bits for baking, I spread them with an oiled spatula on the baking sheet, baked them that way,

then scored and split them into rectangles.

These oddly enough taste different from the individual ones, and I like them better. The recipe is my healthy one, used it for years, from the Silver Palate cookbook. Except for my adaptations: olive oil instead of canola, my own buttermilk made from a spoonful of lemon juice added to milk to sour it.

So now the dreaded breadbaking is postponed for a day or two...


  1. They look lovely...I'm itching to slather one with butter and dig in. :)

  2. I'm with Heather - please pass the butter!

  3. Yum! Hurry up ladies I need some butter on mine as well! I'll have to try one of your bread-dodging recipes!
