I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Lemon and Raisin Loaf

I won't tell you how good this was, I'll just say we ate nearly the whole loaf in one day! Oops, snackcident!

1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup butter, room temperature
1/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1  1/4 cups flour
2 tsps baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 cup milk
zest of 1 lemon
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 tbsps maple syrup
1 tbsp molasses

Mix flour, baking powder, salt and lemon zest together in a large bowl. Set aside.

Cream together the butter and sugar, then add the eggs and milk. Combine the maple syrup, molasses and lemon juice and add to the wet ingredients. Stir in the raisins.

Mix the dry and wet ingredients together and pour into a greased and floured 9 X 5" loaf pan.

Bake at 375 F for 45 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.

Cool 5 minutes in pan before removing and cooling completely on a rack.

This goes down so easily I would seriously consider doubling the recipe!
