Sarah McLachlan's Favourite Recipes

Posted by Hello I love her music...I love the recipes in this book! Almost all vegetarian...but soooo good everyone will be pleased.

Living on a cramped tour bus for months on end, hopping from greasy spoon to greasy spoon — the life of a rock star may be glamorous, but it is not without its hardships. Singer-songwriter, and good cook, Sarah McLachlan brought
Chef Jaime Laurita on board to cook for her band and crew. They soon discovered that, even on the go, you can indulge in sumptuous and healthy food.

Mom's Currant Cake

Makes 1 loaf

2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup heavy cream or half and half
1 heaping tablespoon molasses
12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) room temperature unsalted butter, plus more for pan
3/4 cup Demerara sugar
3 large eggs
2 cups currants

1. Preheat the oven to 325°. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. Butter a 9-by-5 inch loaf pan; set aside.
2. In a small saucepan, heat the cream over medium heat. Stir in molasses. In a medium bowl, cream the butter until light and fluffy. Gradually add the sugar. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, beating to combine after each addition. Stir in the cream mixture, then the currants. Add the dry ingredients and beat to combine.
3. Pour into prepared pan, and bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 hour 15 minutes.

Is this a new book? It looks really cute. Thanks for sharing!

Funny coincidence, I bought this book on a trip to London last October, just because I like her music. Really a nice one, the photography is quite special.

i saw her make this on martha stewart a couple years ago
