My first born got married this past weekend! His bride was absolutely exquisite and the ceremony was perfect. It had all the right elements with some precious humor sprinkled in. I can’t wait to share more as the photos start streaming in.
As much fun as we had, the excitement and anticipation and planning, left me straight up exhausted. So I took a day off from work to stay in my pajamas, nap, and recoup. Unfortunately my body wasn’t getting the memo. Maybe I was too tired to rest??
Of course, I did what I do best, BAKE! It sounds crazy, but baking and cooking relax me. Especially when it comes to making bread. This is another recipe from The Food Nanny’s Cookbook “For The Love of Kamut.” I’ve mentioned before, in previous blog posts, how much I love this flour. It’s so much easier to digest and I don’t have negative reactions regarding my thyroid like I do with other flours.
This bread reminds me of the loaf you get at Outback Steak House. Only, this one is sooooo much better. The combinations of brown sugar, cocoa powder, honey and molasses is what makes this bread a favorite around the dinner table. The aromas coming from your kitchen will have everyone standing in line for that first sample. Including your neighbors! 😉
I have never made bread before this year and now I can’t seem to make it enough. For something that was once very intimidating to me, now is one of my favorite things to make. (I think these would make yummy Christmas gifts/treats wrapped in a beautiful package. Add a jar of gourmet honey or butter and voila!) Besides there is nothing better than warm homemade bread right out of the oven.
We served this bread with cinnamon and honey butter: 1 stick of butter softened, 1 tablespoon of honey, and 1-2 tsp of cinnamon. Mix well with a spoon and spread over a warm slice of Oatmeal and Molasses Bread. Your family will thank you!
