Recipe Review: Another “Quick” Bread Recipe

March 2010 (Winter 2010 Semester) 026Guess I’m really into quick, lately eh? 🙂

Anyways, this recipe is for a whole loaf of bread, but you don’t have to wait for it to rise or anything. (There’s no yeast.) 

The taste wasn’t quite like your typical bread but it still tasted good to me.

My best description of the flavor would be that it tastes like a “bread-like” pancake. Hard to imagine, I know! So you’ll just have to try it out and let me know what you think. (Note: It was however, good enough to post about and good enough to eat! 🙂 It didn’t last long in my house!)

First off, I’d advise baking this bread in a smaller loaf pan (or double the recipe to use a regular sized loaf pan) with the rack placed in the top section of your oven.

Now, for the slightly altered recipe:

  • 1 cup oat flour (GF if needed or another cup of flour/GF blend)
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (or GF blend) *I think this recipe would work well GF
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey (or agave, maple syrup, etc) 
  • 1 tablespoon oil (or melted butter/earth balance/coconut oil)
  • 1 cup milk (or non-dairy alternative)

Preheat your oven to 450 F. In a medium mixing bowl, combined the oil and honey. Add the other ingredients (besides the milk) and stir well. Add the milk gradually, stirring frequently. You may not need the whole cup. Add the milk until a soft dough forms. If you add a little too much milk, you can add a little more flour. Grease and flour your pan (as this dough is quite sticky.) Once you’ve made a soft dough  (GFer’s :), you will especially understand how “soft” this can be), place the dough in the greased pan. Place pan in the oven for twenty minutes or until top is golden and the insides are cooked well (check this with a toothpick.) Place on a cooling rack to cool. Cut and enjoy!

And as the original author suggests, “It’s pretty dense, but great when fresh from the oven. Especially with butter [or earth balance/coconut oil] and honey [agave] on cold [or any] mornings!"

Did you make this? Are you going to try it GF? If so, let me know! I’d love to see how it turned out for you! 🙂
