A lot of working recently. That’s good.
Less time for baking. That’s really bad.
That is why now I can really appreciate these moments when I can unwind spending my time in the kitchen, mixing, cutting, stirring… and of course, tasting!
Browsing through some baking websites, I found several cakes looking so interesting (taste-wise, obviously) that I had to spend some time thinking which one to choose… Well, after a long fight with me, myself and I, the decision was made – I’d make something else ;)
This something else is a cake. I mean, bread… I mean, a cake… Hmmm, that’s the thing – hard to say if that’s more like a cake or bread :) Let’s assume for a moment it’s bread. Well, that’s a sweet one, perfect for coffee. Now, one can say it’s definitely a cake. Really? Everyone who saw it said it was bread, bread for sure! :)
I chose to call it bread as… it’s my Sarenka and well, I can call it the way I want ;)
I’m not a big fan of banana baking therefore it came as a huge surprise that I liked it so much! My taste, absolutely. Banana Bread is quite heavy and wet in its texture. Yes, my taste :)
I found it on Asia’s blog and introduced tiny (really really tiny) alterations :)
One of the best bread on Sarenka!
One of the best I’ve ever made!
I mean, one of the best… for me :) If you’re not fond of heavy bread with a lot of seeds inside, then you’ll have to search for something else. I have to admit that though the bread may seem quite heavy, the inside is rather fluffy and far from being solid!
As you may have noticed, I’ve been making yeast-based bread only… but this leaven-based ones… Hmmm… Still on my mind, still on my mind :)
As for now, try this one – especially those who CAN see the difference between the ready-made and home-made breadstuff :)
And one more thing, kind of important – if you’re sitting in your armchairs now, whining over your poor fitness motivation, blaming yourself for lack of consistency in exercising etc etc, go to the kitchen NOW! Make this bread NOW! During kneading I guess I burnt thousands of calories ;D
Once it turned out that making your own bread at home is sooo easy and, what’s more, soooo tasty – I promised to myself I would bake it from time to time. Really worth doing so. As I mentioned some time ago, this feeling when you take out warm bread straight from the oven is simply… priceless :)
Those who check on Sarenka more often know that I’m mostly in favour of wholemeal bread :) Well, can’t do much about it – no one will convince me that wheat breadstuff is superior to the wholemeal one :) Nope, sorry ;)
They say that first times are highly overrated… Well, that’s my second bread ever so according to what they say, it should be way better than the first one. To be honest, both are equally good! :)) No favouring ;)
And by the way… I’ve got a new baking form! Be ready for new experiments ;D
