What my degree in IPE didn't teach me about baking, DIY, fitness, and life…
Welcome to the second installment of Tempting Tidbit Trials, where I try out the recipes I’ve featured on Temptation Tuesdays. This time I’m trying out My Healthy ‘Ohana’s Honey Whole Wheat Oat Bread.
I have to say I agree with her – it’s simple and delicious! (Hubby gave it two thumbs up.) It looks amazing, all golden brown and grainy – it’s a bread you’re proud to serve. And the smell as I took it out of the pan – wow! If you could bottle that and sell it, you’d be a millionaire. It was just like walking past a boulangerie at (French bread bakery) at 5am.
Cutting into it, this bread gets better. It’s full of nooks and crannies to soak up melted butter, or (my preference) peanut butter and honey. Plus, the bread had real staying power. It kept for 4-5 days without once tasting stale. My one complaint is that it was a bit too chewy for me. This often happens to breads and cakes that don’t have any fat. To solve this, I’d add a tbs spoon of melted butter or oil to the yeast mixture. That way, I think it’d be near perfect. I’m definitely making it again!
Wanna make it too? This time I’ll use teal to indicate my modifications and notes. (Last time I found that the parentheses just blended into the background.)
