Opened my Facebook and found this recipe. It sounded good…No, it sounded great, actually. Sometimes you need to embrace the goodness that is butter. This recipe is fast, easy and I think, a new favorite around here.
The Usual Cast Of Characters
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups buttermilk
1 stick butter
4 tsp baking powder
4 tsp sugar
2 tsp salt
The Steps to Glory
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Combine all of the dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
Next, add the buttermilk and mix all of the ingredients together until a moist dough is formed.
Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl, and then pour it into an 8×8 or 9×9 baking dish (make sure that your pan is not too small or shallow so that the butter doesn’t drip out of the pan while it’s baking).
Place the dough right on top of the melted butter and use a spatula to spread it evenly across the pan until it touches the sides.
Cut the unbaked dough (it should be swimming in butter at this point) into 9 evenish squares.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on top.
Enjoy for breakfast, lunch or dinner! These biscuits are the perfect companion to any meal. Try them with jelly!
We rounded out our Maine trip with a visit to Bar Harbor. Hands down, Acadia is one of the most beautiful places. Before we arrived I feared large and noisy crowds pushing out our enjoyment of the national park experience, and there may have been a moment of two during the day that we had to reorganize plans, but the days spent in the park were mostly peaceful, relaxing and rejuvenating. The Princess enjoyed some family friendly hikes, complete with a snake sighting, and we all enjoyed the beautiful views from Cadillac Mountain. We could not get reservations for the carriage ride through the park, but what we did see was more than enough for us.
Our Bed and Breakfast was located very close to downtown Bar Harbor and we were able to walk…and shop…to everything we needed. The restaurants were unique, the vibe was chill and the weather could not have been better.
I love late summer. My mind starts to dream about fall. It is my favorite season. I can’t wait to wear sweaters, pick apples and eat and drink pumpkin spice everything. My favorite part of September is back to school. I’m busy buying school supplies, bigger uniforms and a new backpack for the Princess and remembering my own back to school experiences. It is tradition that I decorate for this magical time and it gives me an excuse to buy more antique school items!
What can I say about Camden Maine…beside the fact it is now one of my all time favorite places to visit. Our Bed and Breakfast alone cinched that deal. We spent a delightful two days learning about lobster boats, shopping at the cutest little shops, hiking some kid friendly trails and just relaxing by the water. Unless you are a totally hard hearted person, you just can’t help falling in love.
