Last weekend I got the request for buttermilk biscuits, which I made and they turned out ok. But, I was left with a half gallon of buttermilk (minus 1 cup, of course). Found a recipe for buttermilk pound cake and I had everything needed to make it. Pretty basic directions, found a bundt pan in my cabinet that has never been used, and voila.....here it is. Made a quick maple glaze for the top and it is a huge success. Kinda like an old-fashioned buttermilk doughnut with maple frosting.
On the agenda for next weekend....baking using Easter candy. Look out Peeps! Your fate is sealed.
