I wasn’t too interested in cooking as a kid, but I did enjoy baking with my mom. She made the best brownies, and a fantastic pumpkin bread. Just before I moved from Florida I found the card above mixed in with some recipes. I wrote it out when I was a kid. I can’t remember if it was for an elementary school project or just my ocd tendencies showing early on, but I’m glad I have it! Yeah, it’s written in pink pen. I’m a girl, whadayawant?
(Mom, if that’s not the right recipe please send it to me!)
To go along with my new attempted healthy eating regime, I decided to try to recreate the bread in a more healthy fashion. I may have gone overboard with the changes though.
It looks alright and tastes very good, but somewhere along the way I went astray. I made the bread vegan, sugar-free, lower-fat and whole grain. It was a case of too many changes. I had a feeling in the beginning it wouldn’t work out perfectly, but I wanted to try.
As you can see, while the outside is done the inside is still gummy and undercooked. Very edible, but not even close to perfect. I think soon I’ll revisit this and just make less changes. The loaves didn’t rise very well, and I think one of the main culprits is using all spelt flour. Next time I’ll try half spelt half whole wheat pastry.
Jake was interested, but when I offered him a little piece he didn’t want it.
Yeah, I take pictures on the floor sometimes. It’s where the best lighting is until we get a dining table.
