Favourite Boat Recipes

22 Mar

Ok – I have a whole list of recipes (look in the main menu) but my favourite are the easiest (of course!) to make – I just like to “hurl” everything in a bowl, so here are my top five recipes. Add your own recipes in the comments section and I will add them to the main recipe page!

Coffee Cake (from Bessie Flynn or Forteau, Labrador)

⅔ cup white sugar
2 tsp butter
1 egg
½ tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1¼ cup flour
⅔ cup milk

Mix together and place half the batter in a loaf pan.

1 tsp cinnamon
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup white sugar

Mix together and put on batter. Add the rest of the batter and bake at 350.

Never Fail Chocolate Cake (from the Legion Cook Book)

3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
2 cups sugar
6 tbsp cocoa
10 tbsp oil
2 tbsp vinegar
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups cold water

Mix dry ingredients together in bowl, make three holes and put oil in one, vinegar in another and vanilla in the last one. Pour cold water over all of it and stir. Bake at 350 for one hour.

Snickerdoodles (Susan Johnson of Dunchurch, Ontario)

1 cup margarine
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
¼ cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
3 ¾ cups flour
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp cream of tartar
2 tsp salt

Form dough into 1 inch balls. Dip in sugar and cinnamon. Bake at 375 for five minutes.

Blueberry Buckle (pick the berries while anchoring somewhere on Georgian Bay – Covered Portage Cove perhaps?)

2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
¼ cup butter
¾ cup sugar
1 egg
½ cup milk
2 cups blueberries

Topping ingredients:

¼ cup butter
½ cup sugar
⅓ cup flour
½ tsp cinnamon

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg. Add the flour, alternating with milk. Toss the berries in 1 – 2 tbsp flour and fold in. Pour batter into 8 inch spring form pan. Set aside.

Combine ingredients for topping with fork to make crumbly mixture. Sprinkle over batter. Bake for one hour.
