Thanks for the info on Coconut oil Brigid. I have been reading the pros and cons of this for years. I do use the virgin oil. A little more expensive but I like it. I use it quite a bit, usually mixed with either x-tra virgin olive oil or clarified butter for frying or sauteing, but had never used it in baking. I just got back from the store and got me some King Arthur White whole wheat flour like CM suggested. I am going to try and make all my own breads etc. Another thing, A lady in front of me was carded and she was quite a bit over 21. The Manager was there also so I asked him about it and mentioned this conversation on the other thread. It seems that "Target" has a store policy to card everyone and it is also a State Law now (at least in IL). Partly because Adults ARE buy for underage kids among other reasons. Happy Easter to you this Sunday and Passover everyone who celebrates Passover.
Happy Easter to you, too! I hope you have a beautiful day, and I admire your plans to make your own bread. I like to do it, but I usually have bread that turns out too heavy for my liking. I will keep trying. I guess the secret is in the kneading.
I have had a bread machine for years now. I used to make all my bread from scratch many years ago before there were the machines. I still do the no-knead bread which you should try. I think you would really like it and it's so easy to make.
I will look for one of those recipes. Sounds good to me!
I made the muffins again today and did a modification for my diet. I actually posted what I did on the "what did you bake today" thread. Brigid, you did inspire me to make something healthy for myself. They came out wonderful. Thanks, Beverly
I am so glad! That is what we are all here for; to help eachother.
This is the Revised Date-Nut Muffins that Brigid posted.
First boil a cup of water and add ½ cup of chopped dates, let soak for abt 10 min.
In a Bowl mix the following:
¼ Cup A/P Flour
½ Cup Whole Wheat Flour
¼ Cup Oatmeal Flour (Can grind your own using Regular Oatmeal)
½ Tsp. Wheat Gluten
½ Tsp. Baking Soda
½ Tsp. Baking Powder
½ Tsp. Cinnamon or Pumpkin Pie Spice
(Now this is extra that I add in just to make it a little more healthy but
you do not have to).
1 Tbs. Wheat Germ
1 Tbs. Ground flax seed
½ Tsp. Chia seeds
½ Tsp. Of any another seed that you want to add. These are all optional.
In another bowl:
1 Tbs. melted coconut oil
½ Cup unsweetened apple sauce
¼ Cup sucralose - sugar subsitute (ADA recommends this)
¼ Cup Raw sugar (Turbinado)
Add the water and dates an stir till blended well
Put the dry ingrediants 1/3 at time into the wet and blend.
Add ¼ cup chopped walnuts.
This makes 6 regular size muffins. I spray with baking spray.
Fill muffin pans to the top. When done, they just come right out.
Bake 350. for approx 15 min. (I use my toaster oven)
Put on a cooling rack. These freeze very well.
I have been making these every week and actually have one in the morning a couple of times a week as a meal replacement with a sml fruit smoothie or just some fruit. If anyone tries them I would really like some feedback. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Excellent work BasilRock. Good substitutions and instructions....so when is your cookbook coming out?
