So I’ve spent this winter pretty healthy, even with running 6.5 miles in 20 degree weather and running in the rain. Yet now that I’m going to Whistler in two days, my body has decided to come down with something. Luckily, it’s nothing really big – mainly cough and phlegm. Lovely, I know. So this is going to be short as I want to try and be in bed before 10 pm!
A few months ago, my roommate found a recipe for bread that didn’t require yeast, flour, eggs… Pretty much things you find in most cakes. She found this recipe on ReadyMade:
Oil or butter for greasing pan
1 2/3 cup buttermilk or plain yogurt
2 1/2 cup (about 12 oz) whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup molasses (or maple grade syrup)
– Heat the oven at 325 degrees. Grease an 8×4 inch or 9×5 inch loaf pan, preferably non-stick
– Mix together dry ingredients. Stir in the molasses into the buttermilk or yogurt. Stir the liquid into the dry ingredients (just enough to combine) then pour into the pan. Bake until firm, 45 minutes to an hour. Cool on a rack for 15 minutes until removing from the pan.
The bread is pretty sweet from the molasses, so it tastes best with butter or jam/jelly. The bread is pretty dense, not light and airy, but it’s really good. Kelly’s made this a few times. There’s definitely been some experimentation, sometimes water will get added to buttermilk if there’s not enough… Cooking time gets played around with.. But every time the bread tastes delicious! I definitely recommend you try this, and also check out Kelly’s Esty website: ink whimsy
Question of the day: Best way to get rid of a beginning of a cold?!?
