Roger’s White Bread

This bread was developed by Roger Aldrich to be served in the restaurant. He developed all our bread recipes that we still use in the restaurant today. Bread is baked here by our bakers, 8 loaves at a time. Since that was too much, we brought this recipe down to two loaves for you at home.

This is a hearty white bread with a sweet taste. It makes for excellent sandwiches and toast. This recipe does take a bit of time but the results are homemade bread that everyone will goggle up!

Gingerbread Scones

Sticking with the same theme as the previous post, this recipe uses our Gingerbread Pancake Mix. These scones make for a great post sledding treat! They go well with a big glass of milk and incorporate some of this season’s flavors.

They have a nice ginger bite, crumbly soft texture, and are sweet enough that children (of all ages) will gobble them up. This recipe is a little time consuming, but very worth it. These are something we just recently created with this blog in mind. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

Gingerbread Whoopie Pies

These are a great holiday treat (or anytime really). They are sweet, fun to share, and easy to make. Plus, these are a great twist on the traditional gingerbread flavors that are so popular when the holidays roll around.

While we prefer a cream cheese filling- feel free to be creative! Some folks even like to put lemon curd in between them, others like just whipped cream.

Polly’s Maple Cookies

These cookies make for a delightful treat. They are excellent for chilly fall days, they are easy to make and fun to serve! One of our employees says they are perfect for dipping into coffee.

This recipe was a family recipe. It uses our maple sugar and we aren’t sure who came up with the recipe but it has long been used on the farm. The maple flavor is well balanced and not overwhelming, just sweet enough to compliment hot cocoa, coffee, or tea.

Blueberry Muffins

This muffin recipe uses our original pancake mix in case you are in the mood for something other than pancakes! They are a lovely start to your day, either just as is or cut them in half, butter both sides and grill them for an extra special treat.

These use a little bit of maple sugar also so they are slightly sweet, but not overly so. They are a hit side dish or just great with your coffee to get you started in the morning.

1/2 Cup of Polly’s Maple Granulated Sugar
4 Eggs
2 Cups of milk
1 Large Polly’s Original Pancake Mix
¾ Cup of melted butter
1 heaping cup of blueberries- dusted with 1 Tbsp of flour

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F and grease (or line with papers) a 12 cup muffin tin.

Mix together the maple sugar, eggs, and milk until blended.

Add entire contents of Original Pancake Mix bag, and stir lightly.

Add melted butter, and blueberries, mix gently until combined. If batter is too thick, add a little more milk.

Fill muffin cups about three quarters of the way full with batter.

Cook at 425 degrees F. for 10 minutes, rotate the pan in the oven, and cook for another 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown on tops and edges.

Remove muffins from the oven and allow muffins to cool for 5 minutes before trying to remove them from the tin

Remove from tin and enjoy.

– To make apple cinnamon muffins instead of blueberry muffins simply omit blueberries and replace with 2 peeled and diced apples mixed in 1 tsp of cinnamon, ½ tsp of nutmeg, and 1 tbls of flour.

-To grill the finished muffins, we just slice them in half and brush the inside with butter, we then place them buttered side down on a greased skillet and grill to your liking.
