My poppy seeds kept staring at me from the cupboard. So I decided to make a poppyseed cake.
On the facing page to that recipe was a carrot cake recipe. Well, I had all the ingredients for that one, too, so I decided to make it as well.
That reminded me of the delicious yogurt biscuits I had made, so I looked up that recipe while I was at it.
Whoops! It turns out that the biscuit illustration at the beginning of the yogurt dough recipe was for the previous buttermilk biscuit recipe. Oh, well. I decided to make it again anyway, even though it was intended to be a tart shell.
Here is my set-up for all three recipes.
All the recipes said to let the butter soften, which I tried to do.
Apparently, my kitchen is not warm enough. Even the inside of the oven with a pilot light is not warm enough. So I ended up melting the butter on top of the stove.
The cakes cooked at 300 F. for 1 1/2 and 2 hours respectively.
They are delicious!
The biscuits await in the frig.
