Scottish Shortbread

Scottish Shortbread by Marlin Rinehart

This is the most famous cookie of Scotland. It’s a must to use pure butter. Traditionally, shortbread contains no other flavor. I’ve been making this recipe since 1970 when I got the recipe in Edinburgh, Scotland. The addition of a small amount of rice flour gives a firmness and crunchiness to the cookie. Most American recipes for…

Butter and Flour Free Chocolate Cake

Butter and Flour Free Chocolate Cake by Hungry Jenny

This contains chickpeas which might sound strange but actually works really well! It doesn't taste particularly 'chickpea'-like and is still incredibly moist despite having no butter. You can easily make this completely gluten-free by using gluten-free baking powder too. This was made in an 8" square tin.

The veggies are cut in small pieces to layer better between noodles. As usual, this is way better the next day than the first (and even 2 or 3…

Fantastic Irish Soda Bread

Fantastic Irish Soda Bread by Nancy Miyasaki

I made two Irish Soda Breads for St. Patrick's Day this year, and this one was superior. And it is really, really easy! If you eat it hot out of the oven, it melts in your mouth like a warm cornbread. If you let it sit a few hours, it hardens into a thicker texture with the same great taste. You won't be disappointed!
