Wonderful Easy Bread (makes you poo)

January 31, 2012

I have recently discovered that I really enjoy making bread. And you notice that I didn’t say “baking bread” because I think of baking bread as bread that you have to knead. I do love to knead dough and make proper bread, but I also love to make quick breads. These “quick” breads sometimes contain yeast in the recipe but rise in the pan very quickly. And some, like banana bread, you just stir together and put in the oven. This bread is one of the former.  You have to bloom the yeast, but don’t get nervous, it’s very easy. Basically, you mix the yeast in warm water and a little honey let it sit for 10 min. Pour that into the flour and oats mixture mix the dough with a spoon, put it into the pan, let it sit for 30 minutes. Put it in the oven. It’s that easy!

This is a recipe that I found on 101 cookbooks. This is Heidi Swanson’s food blog. It’s wonderful! She inspires me so much! I feel kind of silly because it seems I’m constantly referring to her recipes here. What can I say? She’s fantastic. She calls this the easy little bread. She apparently got this recipe from another recipe book (from New Zealand) and made it her own, much like I have done here.  If you click that link you will find her recipe. I added pecans, because I’m from Texas, and we put pecans anywhere we can! This loaf was begging for ’em!

The next day, all that's left of the loaf.

Here’s a photograph of the other side of the bread, you can see it’s kind of boring looking Compared to this beautiful grainy exterior.

Somewhat boring looking.

But then all you need to do is slip it into the toaster, and magic happens! Butter is of course optional–I usually take that option.

Magical toast!

I urge you to give this easy little bread to try. You won’t be disappointed. I promise! I also think it’s appropriate here to make a side note that Heidi was probably to polite to mention.  This bread has an incredible effect on the digestive system.  If you’re feeling sluggish and feel like you need a little help, this little bread will change your life. I am not kidding. You’ll poo like mad.  Enjoy my friends!
