A Recipe

Ok, here it is :)

Scone Bread

Scone Bread

Recipe makes 2 - 8" cake pans, feel free to 1/2 it if need be. Also, remember, it is not a sweet bread either. The dried fruit gives is flavor, but if you are wanting something really sweet, this isn't it.

Bowl 1 mix together:

5 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
4 tea. baking powder
1 tea. baking soda
3 tbl. butter/marg

Mix first 4 ingredients together then cut in the butter, set aside.

Bowl 2 mix together:

3 cups buttermilk
2 eggs

Pour wet mixture into dry mixture and beat for 5 minutes. Batter should not be lumpy and consistency will change.

Add 1 tbls. flour to at least 1 cup of dried fruit (raisins, craisins, blueberries...etc) and add to bread mixture. Feel free to use more dried fruit, whatever amount is fine. In the one above I used about 1 1/2 cups total.

Pour into 1 large (thinking bundt or tube or heck 13 x 9 pan or 2 small 8" cake pans)

Bake 350 degrees for 20 mins, then bake 325 for 1 hour. I usually go a bit less than an hour due to my oven. I like the outside crusty, but not burnt. It'll be clean with a toothpick and hard on the outside.

LMK if you have any questions! :) I have no idea where the recipe came from either so I can't give credit...
