COOKING 101: ULTIMATE LOW SUGAR BANANA NUT BREAD


When I say ULTIMATE I mean only 3/4 cup Brown Sugar and NO vegetable oil.

ULTIMATE LOW SUGAR BANANA NUT BREAD

This recipe is the best banana nut bread I have tested lately. In the past year I have made 11 banana nut bread recipes.

This recipe is so full of natural flavor without all the sugar. You can taste the hint of cinnamon and vanilla.

There is no Rancid vegetable oil in this recipe either. I am switching out all vegetable oils for animal fat rich butter, lard and what ever else I can try.

This is a very dense, but fluffy quick bread

BREAKFAST IN BED: French Toast… Simple and Easy…


BY: Orgnat Life

SKILL: Beginner

Time: 15 minutes

FRENCH TOAST

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg per 3 slices of bread (Day old bread is great to use, make sure nice healthy slice.)
  • 3 tablespoons of water
  • Vegetable oil
  • Griddle or Skillet

Heat your Griddle or Skillet to a medium heat.

Beat the eggs and water until combined.

Place each slice of bread gently into the egg bath making sure both sides are coated well.

Place on to hot greased griddle or pan and repeat.

Cook for 2 minutes and flip. Total time is about 4 minutes. Slowly cook until lightly brown on both sides. Don’t rush or you will have mushy French Toast and that’s gross.

Lightly butter each slice and serve with warm syrup or fruit.

Use you imagination for the toppings. You can also make Savory and Zesty French Toast for lunch or dinner.

I don’t put sugar or cinnmon in my egg mix. There is enough in the syrup. I’d rather add some cinnamon to the syrup and slightly warm it and serve on the side. This way you are not serving a plate of sugar. Make it so diabetics can enjoy. Make it fun and add some choices of fruit, whip cream or what ever. Simple and less sugar.

I made a loaf of bread wth the buttery dinner roll left over dough a few weeks before. I took the loaf from the freezer… This was a wise move to use this bread. This recipe just melts in your mouth.

Morning Sweets… Cinnamon Rolls with Walnuts


Cinnamon Rolls with Walnuts
You can make this recipe in no time. Very easy and all so yummy.

By Orgnat Life

This yummy recipe is so simple a beginner could achieve 5 STARS first time. Wait there’s is an “IF”.. That is, if you have a bread maker. Most of the models make dough.

I always encourage everyone to get a bread maker. If you are going to make bread and rolls regularly, let the bread maker do the hard work for you.

Bread Maker

You can purchase Bridgford Frozen dough at the store, but that defeats the purpose of making your own… NO PRESERVEATIVES… So which ever you choose to fit your life style.

Click here for nutritional informationhttps://www.bridgford.com/products/pdfs/6120.pdf

This recipe makes 1.5 lb of dough or 15 large rolls. This is a basic dough recipe for your creative adventures in baking rolls and breads.

Level: Intermediate Yield: 12 servings Total Time: 2 hours 30 mins
Cook Time: 30 minutes

Utensils: Bread Maker, rolling pin or a sturdy water glass, measuring cup, measuring set, 2 spoons, sharp knife, 13″ x 9″ pan and something to roll your dough out on. I use a large pizza pan with a small rolling pin.

Dough Recipe
If you are using a bread maker place ingredients in container as follows.
⦁ 1 cup Water
⦁ 4 tablespoons Butter cut into tiny pieces
⦁ 1 and 1/2 teaspoons Salt
⦁ 3 cups Unbleached Flour (regular if that is all you have)
⦁ 1 tablespoon sugar
⦁ 2 teaspooons active dry yeast
Set menu on bread amker to dough. Depending on your bread maker 90 minutes approximately

If you are using frozen dough it will take about 60 to 90 minutes to thaw. Follow directions on package. You can thaw the dough out in your refridgerator over night if baking in the morning. Bring the dough to room tempreture. Once your dough is ready you can follow the directions below.

Ingredients for Filling
⦁ 1 to 1.5 sticks Butter
⦁ Sugar
⦁ Cinnamon sprinkel to taste
⦁ Walnuts (finely chopped)

While you are waiting on your dough, remove 1.5 sticks of butter from refrigerator so it can soften up. After the butter is soft use up to 1/4 stick of butter and heavily spread butter on pan bottom and sides with a spoon.
Cut up 1 to 1 1/2 sticks of cold butter into small pieces and cover the bottom of your pan evenly with the butter.
Take 1/4 cup of sugar and lightly sift over the butter. Set that to the side.

As soon as your dough is ready / proofed take it out and knead it one more time. I butter my hands and knead without flour.
⦁ Split it into 4 even sections.
⦁ Roll out 1 section so it is about 1/8″ thick or less. No bigger or you will end up with a doughy roll.
⦁ Butter the dough slightly.
⦁ Sprinkel 3 tablespoons sugar over dough.
⦁ Sprinkel your cinnamom. I like mine a little heavy but I like cinnamon. You can experiment with each section you roll out so in the end you will know what is a good coverage of cinnamon for you.
⦁ Sprinkel your fine chopped Walnuts to taste or make without nuts.
⦁ Take the dough at the edge and start to roll the dough up into a log shape and cut into 3. Place into your pan.

Leave at least 1″ more or less in between each roll. Cover with dish cloth and let rise for 30 minutes or until double to triple the size.

Preheat oven to 350′ degrees prior to cooking
Make sure you have at least 4″ inches of room around the rolls, if not, lower the rack.

Cook for 30 minutes in the center of the oven.

Take out of oven let set for 5 minutes.
Take a plate or plastic container to size and place on top of pan and flip it over. Leave the pan on top for 5 minutes. Lift pan off and let cool for 15 to 20 minutes.
