  1. Omit yeast, use buttermilk, yogurt, shortening (or butter), and baking powder.

    Try this:

    2 cups flour
    3/4 cups white sugar
    2 tsp baking powder
    1/4 tsp nutmeg
    1/4 tsp cinnamon
    1/4 tsp allspice
    1 tsp salt
    3/4 cup milk
    2 whole eggs, beaten
    2 tsp vanilla extract
    1 tb shortening
