I have never been much of a bread maker.   Bread and I don’t get along very well, and that is kind of sad to me . . . for after all, isn’t bread considered to be the “Staff of Life?”

I don’t make bread, I make doorstops.  Nice, heavy, doorstops.

Point in case, yesterday . . . I thought I would make this lovely cardamom scented vanilla bread, but by heck, what did I end up with?????

A lovely cardamom scented door stop.  The only thing missing was the handle.

I’m not sure what my problem with bread is.  Oh, I make nice enough bread in the bread maker, but then the bread maker does all the work, I just dump the ingredients in, cross my fingers, and hope for the best!

I do make good biscuits though . . . and they are a form of bread.  Yesterday I dusted off an old recipe of mine, that I have had for donkey’s . . .

After that first failure of the day, I just had to have some success at something . . . besides . . . I was hankering after bread.  And what’s a gal to do when that happens . . . you bake biscuits, which are not bread . . . but are sometimes better than bread.  These are fabulous.  Especially when spread with cold butter whilst still warm from the oven.  Oh my . . . oh my . . .

Cheddar cheese and basil makes these home baked pan biscuits a tasty supper accompaniment.  They are wonderful with stews and soups, and incredibly good with cold meats and salads.  I guess they just go well with everything!

1/3 cup butter (75g)
2 1/4 cups flour (225g)
4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (1 cup)
(plus about 1 ounce more for sprinkling on at the end)
1 TBS baking powder
1 TBS sugar
1 tsp dried basil leaves
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk (250ml)

Pre-heat the oven to 200*C/400*F/ gas mark 6.  Place the butter in an 8 inch square baking pan and set it into the oven to melt.  (3 to 5 minutes)  Remove from the oven and set aside.

Meanwhile whisk together the flour, cheese, baking powder, sugar, basil leaves and salt in a large bowl.  Add the milk and stir it in just until the mixture is moistened evenly.  Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead for a minute until smooth.  (about 6 or 7 turns)

Pat or roll the dough out to a 12 by 6 inch rectangle.  Cut into 12 1-inch wide strips.  Dip the strips into the melted butter in the pan, one at a time and then fold each strip in half.  Place the folded strips in 2 rows in the same pan as you have melted the butter in. Sprinkle the 1 ounce of shredded cheese evenly over top.

Bake for 23 to 28 minutes, or until lightly browned.  Serve warm with cold butter for spreading and enjoy!!
