I've often heard children say, "There's nothing to do today". I beg to differ. I'd like to inspire you to do something. Anything. Read. Bake. Hike. Fish. Plant. Sail. Climb. Play. Reach. Move. Laugh. Dream; and take time to sit with me on The Old Granite Step.

The Art of British Cooking - Buttermilk Bread.

It's an easy

recipe to make from a favorite vintage cookbook....The Art of British Cooking.  The ingredients are simple; one pound of flour (equivalent to approximately 3 1/2 cups), one teaspoon of baking soda, one teaspoon of salt and one cup of buttermilk.  If you don't have buttermilk, you can add one teaspoon of cream of tartar to fresh milk before mixing with the flour.
A nice recipe from across the pond that you can enjoy while binge watching The Crown or Victoria!
Mix all of your dry ingredients.

Add the buttermilk and mix to a light dough.  Divide in two and shape into two six inch rounds.
The recipe calls for a greased pan but I chose to use parchment instead.  Easier cleanup!
The recipe also called for a star on top but being that it is December, I decided to use a snowflake.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until golden brown.
I love this size!  Enjoy one now and freeze one for later.
Perfect with a pat of butter on a snowy morning.
Makes a great gift with homemade pickles or a jar of jam or jelly!
