Dear Frodo –

What I Did Last Summer -


1/3 cup cream
¼ cup water
¼ cup honey
¼ cup butter
1 egg
½ teaspoon salt
2 2/3 cups bread flour
2 teaspoons yeast
¼ cup raisins (or currants or other small dried fruit or berries

4 Tablespoons honey
2 Tablespoons butter

Combine dough ingredients except for raisins. When well mixed to form a ball, turn out onto a floured surface. Add the raisins, and then knead into the dough. Knead for about 5 minutes.

Let dough rest for about 30 minutes or so, and then divide into eight equal portions. Form into round flattened cakes, cover and let rise for about 45 minutes (or until doubled) in a warm draught-free place.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes. While baking, warm the honey and butter until the butter melts. Brush the glaze onto the warm cakes when they are done. If you want, you can let the first “brush on” set a few minutes and then brush on another coat.


2 cups biscuit mix
2 tablespoons margarine (melted)
½ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ cup raisins

Set oven for 425 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 inch pan. Prepare biscuit mix as directed on package. Roll out on a lightly floured board, in rectangle about 8 X 16 inches. Brush with melted margarine. Combine remaining ingredients and sprinkle over dough. Roll up like jelly roll and press long edge firmly to keep from unrolling. Cut in one-inch slices. Place cut side up, in pan. Bake 15 to 18 minutes. Makes about 16.
