Roasted Strawberry Banana Bread

This banana bread is moist and delicious, made with white whole wheat flour, sweet roasted strawberries and ripe bananas, with just a smidgen of butter, so you can enjoy a slice without the guilt!

I had some bananas that were getting brown and I was really in the mood for banana bread, so I combined the two for a delicious quick bread. You can turn these into muffins if you prefer. In the past I attempted this recipe, but the strawberries released too much liquid which made the bread a little too moist. Roasting the strawberries is the perfect solution, most of the liquid dries out from roasting so you get the flavor of the strawberries in every bite.

Buttermilk and Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Buttermilk and Honey Whole Wheat Bread

by Pam on April 8, 2014

I was inspired by a loaf of buttermilk bread I saw on A Southern Grace’s[1] site that looked amazing. I decided to make  a buttermilk loaf using honey & some whole wheat flour this weekend to serve with the Slow Simmered Split Pea Soup I was making for dinner. Even though I am terrified of yeast and get nervous every single time I make bread, I thought this one turned out fantastic. My daughter said that it was the best smell in the world while it was baking and I agree. It smelled amazing and tasted so delicious!

Place the warmed buttermilk, honey, butter, salt, baking soda bread flour, whole wheat flour, and yeast into a bread machine pan in that order. Turn the bread machine to the dough setting and push start.

Once the dough cycle has completed (mine lasts 1 1/2 hours).

Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Form the dough into a roll and place into a loaf pan coated with cooking spray.

Cover with a cloth and let rise, until doubled in size, about 60 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the loaf pan into the oven and bake for 40 minutes, placing a tented of foil over it for the last 20 minutes.

Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before putting on a cooling rack to continue cooling. Slice and serve. Enjoy.

Whole Wheat Ciabatta – Not Bad, Which is Great!

I’ve never had much of a taste for whole wheat bread, which is not surprising if you grew up during the Wonder Bread years. Whole wheat flour is significantly stronger tasting, and its earthy, bitter aftertaste is the reason white flour is the much preferred choice for, well, everything.


Besides the taste, it’s also a little harder to work with, and fairly easy to turn out something with a density that would make a brick blush. But, thanks to many years of requests, I decided to give the old no-knead ciabatta a higher-fiber makeover. Since I don’t have much whole wheat baking experience, I did what any good chef would do…I didn’t do any research, and just tried to figure it out.

I was quite happy with the taste and texture, and going 50/50 with the all-purpose flour provided just enough of that crusty, chewy “normal” bread experience, and we still get a decent amount of whole grain.


The procedure is straightforward, but as I point out in the video, pay attention to when you start. I recommend doing the sponge in the afternoon, mixing the dough at night, and baking it in the morning. Speaking of which, be sure to dust your dough with flour before covering. I didn’t, and had a little sticking problem.

I know many of you have made and enjoyed the traditional ciabatta bread we posted, so I’m looking forward to hearing from those of you who give this whole wheat version a try. Please let me know, and as always, enjoy!


Ingredients:
For the sponge:
1 cup tepid water
1/4 tsp dry active yeast
1 oz (1/4 cup) rye flour (you can sub wheat flour)
2.25 oz (about 1/2 cup) all-purpose flour
2.25 oz (about 1/2 cup) whole wheat flour
let sit until very bubbly, about 5 hours

Then add:
1/2 cup room temp water
1 3/4 tsp fine salt
1 1/2 tsp honey
1 tbsp polenta
1 tbsp ground flax seed
2 tbsp shelled sunflower seeds
4.5 oz (about 1 cup) all-purpose flour
4.5 oz (about 1 cup) whole wheat flour
-Bake at 450 F. for 30-35 minutes
