It was hot. 25C hot. Hotter than it had been in months. I was hungry, but also in a hurry to get onto my balcony with a cold beverage and a book. I was also broke so whatever I made had to be with what I had on hand.

Nana made the best carrot cake. Seriously. You probably know by now that I can’t leave a recipe alone. Nope, not even Nana’s carrot cake recipe. It calls for a cup of oil. A cup? Can’t we lighten it up a bit? Oh, yes we can. Continue reading “Nana’s Carrot Cake”
Anything I can make before I have coffee is easy. A no-brainer. These will start a new cliche; easy as sweet potato biscuits. I got the recipe here.
1 cup flour
3 tsp baking powder
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp butter
3/4 cup mashed sweet potatoes (I did not measure-I had half a sweet potato left over and I mashed it for this recipe)
1/4 cup milk (again, I did not measure, I added a splash to get the dough to the right consistency)
Stir together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in the butter until pieces of shortening are pea-sized or smaller. Mix in the sweet potatoes, and enough of the milk to make a soft dough. The dough will be a little sticky.
Turn dough out onto a floured surface, and pat to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into circles using a biscuit cutter or a drinking glass. Place biscuits 1 inch apart onto a greased baking sheet.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes at 400F until golden brown.
