I made my own bread - no packet mix this time and I'm so excited about it too. To tell the truth it's a bit sad how excited I am! I used this recipe, only I replaced the honey with agave and used 400g wholemeal bread flour and 100g white bread flour, instead of half & half - next time I might use all wholemeal. Also I followed the instructions on the side of the yeast jar to activate it before adding it to the flours.
I baked it for 25 minutes so it's still nice and soft and it rocked for dinner with some pasta.
My baking experiment didn't go exactly as I planned (more on that in a bit) so I made a crumble to use up the plums and strawberries in my fridge, before I go onsite on Tuesday. It rocked.
I cut up 4 plums and about a cup or so of strawberries....
Put into a dish and then rub 100g of vegan margarine into 150g of plain flour. Add 100g of oats, 70g of sugar and a pinch of salt. Then sprinkle it on top and bake in a preheated 190C oven for 45-60 mins (took 55 in my oven) until lightly browned.
I served with a splosh of soya cream but the leftovers will be eaten with custard tomorrow at my parents' house!
Onto the failure - my pecan toffee apple muffins. Well I say failure but they're not that bad. The flavour is awesome but the texture is wrong. I want to try these again really soon though because I think they have the potential for greatness! So recipe is pending tweakage.
I made these for part of the brunch I made for myself and my two friends this morning along with bran muffins, tofu scramble and roasted potatoes - that I stupidly didn't take pictures of!
