  • 1 cup Herman Secret Starter
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Raisin Bread

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Thin Vanilla Glaze

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons melted butter
  • Few drops vanilla extract
  • Dash of salt



  1. Combine all ingredients using a large serving spoon. When smooth, dip the spoon (just to coat) in flour and knead the dough in the bowl with the back of the spoon until it's no longer sticky. Then flour your hands and make a patty of the dough and knead it between palms about 10 times.
  2. Break off 6 equal pieces and shape into patties 1 inch thick. Arrange in greased 1 quart baking dish.
  3. Bake at 425 degrees F for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden.
  4. Let cool in baking dish for 10 minutes before serving.

Raisin Bread

  1. When you begin kneading the dough with the back of the spoon, add Raisin Bread Ingredients. Continue kneading Herman between your palms as directed above. Grease the 1 quart baking dish and break Herman up into 12 small balls. Dust each ball in a mixture of 3 tablespoons sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
  2. Drop the balls into the prepared baking dish and bake at 425 degrees F about 20 to 23 minutes or until golden.
  3. As soon as it's out of the oven, drizzle with Thin Vanilla Glaze.
