Peanut Butter and Banana Cake
As you know, I am a cook! I love cooking & I love Elvis, therefore this page is dedicated to Elvis' favorite recipes! Many of the recipes I have taken from one of my favorite cookbooks, "Are you Hungry Tonight? Elvis' favorite recipes"
This time we're talking about the most important meal of the day... BREAKFAST! When Elvis grew up, he awoke, many times to the sizzle and snap of bacon in Gladys' skillet.
Biscuits and Red-Eye Gravy
2 Cups Flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening
2/3 cup milk
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center and add the milk all at once. Incorporate gently until the dough begins to stick together. Knead the dough on a lightly floured board for 10 - 12 strokes. Roll or pat to 1/2-inch thickness. Try not to handle the dough too much. Cut the dough with a biscuit cutter or slice into squares with a sharp knife. Dip the cutter in flour between cuts. Transfer to an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes or until golden. Serve Warm.
