Editor’s Note: This recipe comes to us from Anujaresh of the Lightninghoof server. It’s a very tasty snack!

Essentially a very dry muffin, similar to British-style scones and great for those of us who like to enjoy Warcraft with a nice cup of tea. I particularly like this recipe because it doesn't require anything I don't already have in my pantry; it doesn't even require eggs.

Time: 10 minutes of prep, 35-45 minutes of waiting around

Ingredients

3 tbsp margarine or butter, softened

2 1/2 cups [Simple Flour]

2 Tbsp sugar (I recommend adding a few Tbsps more)

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp [Salt]

Pam, or something similar to grease the cookie sheet (shortening, butter, vegetable oil, etc.  [Oil of Immolation] may produce unexpected results)

3/4 cups buttermilk  (regular [Ice Cold Milk] will do)

OPTIONAL: 1/3 cups raisins, craisins, dried fruit, or any other mix-in that sounds good

Tools

Cookie sheet

Oven

Large Bowl

Measuring cups & spoons

Knife (butter knife is fine)

Directions

Heat oven to 375.  Use your fingers or a fork to cut margarine into flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt; mixture will resemble fine crumbs.  Stir in raisins and just enough buttermilk so dough leaves side of bowl.  Knead in the bowl for 1-2 minutes, and shape into a roundish ball.  Lightly grease a cookie sheet (cover the sheet with foil first if you want an easier cleanup).  Place the dough on the cookie sheet and flatten to form a round loaf about 6 1/2 inches across.  Take a knife and powder it with flour; cut an X about 1/2 inches deep into the loaf’s top.  Bake until golden brown, 35-45 minutes.  Cut into wedges and serve; goes quite well with jam.

Leftovers

Doesn’t really need to be refrigerated, but refrigeration is never a bad idea.  Very good served cold or reheated.
