J. D. Faver treats us with a special recipe from her new cookbook. Thanks for filling for me on such short notice, June!
Hi Anna Kathryn. I'm delighted to be able to share a favorite recipe with your readers. It’s one of 56 recipes in my newly released cookbook, A Texan in the Kitchen: Autumn Recipes.
I worked as a Nutritionist for the Dairy Council for many years and this was one of the recipes I used to demonstrate. The flavor develops as the batter ages. Batter will keep in the refrigerator for up to six weeks.
10-ounce box of raisin bran cereal
5 cups flour (can use 2 cups whole wheat)
3 cups sugar
3 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons salt
1 quart buttermilk
1 cup cooking oil
4 eggs, beaten
Mix dry ingredients in large bowl. Add liquids. Bake in muffin tins 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees.
Batter will keep in refrigerator for up to six weeks. Aging seems to improve the flavor.
My other news is that the third in my series of romantic thrillers, set close to the Mexican border has just been released. BAD VIBES is available on Amazon, as are the first two in the series. In Bad Vibes, Deputy Darla Calhoun arrests a vagrant, hanging around the marina, but after he’s cleaned up, she discovers a hunky, hard-body with a smoldering gaze hidden beneath the filthy rags. He turns out to be a federal agent working undercover. He’s after a gang of human traffickers using the Intracoastal Waterway to bring sex slaves into the United States from Mexico. Rafael assigns Darla as liaison officer to work with the feds, bringing her face-to-face with the “Iceman”, Mike Burke, the undercover agent she arrested. Darla, Mike and his partner tear up and down the Intracoastal Waterway in pursuit of the human traffickers, but when two local women disappear, the search becomes personal.
The order of the Series is:
1) Bad Medicine
2) Bad Karma
3) Bad Vibes
4) Bad Dreams (under construction)
