I have been learning to make everything from scratch. Part of this learning curve is to use what is on hand, and not to rush out and buy the needed ingredients. Well I made homemade rootbeer the other day(5 gallons) and so I had an abundance of rootbeer. So I sat at my favorite computer and looked up recipes using rootbeer. The above photo is my first attempt at rootbeer bread. I made four loaves and only have three bread pans, so I had a lovely round bread. We loved this bread. It tastes like a honey wheat bread. I froze two loaves and we are enjoying the rest.
PINTO BEAN BREAD
These two are pinto bean bread. I made this first as an entry for the county fair. As I said making things from scratch is my new life, and using what is on hand. We have lots of beans...so again what to make? Well yummy bread. This bread tastes like a wonderful nutty wheat bread.
RAISIN BREADThis was my first attempt at raisin bread. I did not let it rise enough, but thought I would share the skills are learned through practice. This toasted well though and was a great side to oatmeal!
If interested in the recipes, I will email them if you leave your email in the comments in this format...penofjen(at) yahoo(dot) com.
And as a side thought I froze 3 quarts of rootbeer, so I can make 12 more loaves as it was so yummy!
