Wild Moon Cottage is a small working homestead in the pristine Ozark Mountains. We have dairy goats, poultry, organic herb and vegetable gardens, a start of a tiny fruit orchard, several black walnut trees, wild berries and fields of wildcrafting goodness. We raise our own milk, our own eggs, much of our own medicine and food. I do laundry by hand, make my own vinegar, candles, soap, bread, cheese ........ For a living I am an artist and herbalist. My goal for myself and our homestead is to be as self sufficient and self sustaining as possible.

Breakfast Cake

The original recipe came from HillBillyHouseWife but I had to redo it for us and here is my version.

1/2 c baking margarine or butter (1 stick)
2 1/2 c baking mix (Bisquick type or homemade)
4 T sugar
1/2 c milk (approximately)1 t real vanilla or almond extract (optional)

*Mix 1/4 sugar + 1 t cinnamon together for topping and set aside

Put all the butter in a 9x13 baking pan and put in 425 deg oven to melt.

In a medium bowl add baking mix and sugar mixing well. If adding extract, add it now and mix in well. Slowly add milk till a firm dough forms, a big wooden spoon works best. Blend well until you have a soft ball of dough, add more making mix if dough is sticky.

Turn out on wax paper or rolling surface and roll out to a 9x13 rectangle. A clean, floured drinking glass works fine.

Remove pan from oven and carefully place dough in pan on top of butter. ** Be very careful not to burn yourself, the butter is very hot !

With a knife or pizza cutter, cut the dough into strips. I cut once in half long way and then strips short ways. The butter will come thru the cuts, I also use a small spoon and spoon butter over all.

Sprinkle cinnamon/sugar over the top and bake at 425 for 15 to 20 minutes.

A couple of sticks, a piece of fruit and a glass of milk makes a fine breakfast :)
