1 stick butter, softened
1 1/4 C. sugar

Preheat oven to 350. Line muffin pans with liners. Mix both flours together in small bowl. Beat butter in large bowl until smooth. Add sugar and beat to blend. Beat in eggs then the next 3 ingredients. Beat in flour mixture with buttermilk alternately. Spoon batter into lines. Bake until done about 20-25 minutes. Cool then frost.

Homemade Breadcrumbs

Anyone else obsessed with Kitchen BOss??? I LOVE IT!! anyways thats where I got this recipe. I did kinda do my own thing with it. I just used whatever bread I had and I used fresh grated mozzarella and romano cheese. It still turned out great. I just keep it in the fridge and use whenever i need it.

1pound loaf rustic Italian bread such as Pugliese
1cup finely grated pecorino cheese
2garlic cloves put through a garlic press
2tablespoons dried Italian herbs
3tablespoons dried parsley flakes
1/2tablespoon fine sea salt
  1. The day before you plan to make breadcrumbs: Slice the bread into ½ inch slices. Place slices on cake racks to dry overnight.
  2. In batches, crumble or tear bread slices into the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Pulse the bread multiple times until the crumbs are about the size of a dime.
  3. Add the cheese, garlic, herbs and salt and continue to pulse until the breadcrumbs become fine. Store what you are not using in the freezer or in your refrigerator for 3-4 days.
