Banana & Cinnamon Bread

1st Bread-Banana & Cinnamon With A Twist!

My First Bread!
I tried baking my first bread yesterday! I went online for some inspiration, but came up with something off the books.  A little of this & a little of that. Both homemade breads are very soft. 
First I made a base.

  • 5C Organic White Flour
  • 1/4C Grapeseed Oil
  • 2 TSP Sea Salt
  • 4tsp Rapid Rise Yeast
  • 1 TBSP Organic Sugar

I took 2 cups very warm water & added 4tsp Rapid Rise Yeast & 1 TBSP Organic Sugar to

Uh Oh, where is the fizz?

the water.  I stirred for about a minute.  I was a bit worried, because the info I saw showed this mixture a bit fizzy, mine was not.  Uh oh, mistake number one???  I set bowl aside for 5 minutes.
In another bowl I added the 5 cups Organic White Flour, 1/4 cup Grapeseed Oil, 2 tsp Sea Salt.  Then I added that mixture and my water mixture together & blended for about 5 minutes or so.  Until the dough was formed, and pulling away from the sides.
I then covered the bowl with a hand towel & let set & rise for 25 minutes while I

prepared my 2 flavors.

Flavor 1

  • 3TBSP Organic Cinnamon Sugar
  • 1 TBSP Organic Coconut Oil

Flavor 2

  • 2 TBSP Natural Dehydrated Cranberries
  • 2 TBSP Almonds (then I crushed them)
  • 1/2 Organic Banana
  • 2 TBSP Organic Brown Sugar

After my 25 minutes were up, I floured the counter & kneaded my dough.  Maybe another 5 minutes or so until it felt nice, soft & didn’t spring back to a ball.  I divided the dough in half.  With the first half, I rolled out into a sort of rectangle shape & spread Flavor 1 all over it, rolled it back up & placed in a non stick pan, covered for another 20 minutes.

With my second half, I did the same process, but with Flavor 2, and placed in a greased glass pan.
I baked both in the preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes until the tops were a light golden color.  I pulled out & let cool enough so I could take them out of the pans, put them on a cooling rack, cut into them while they were still warm & YUMO!  
They surprised me & the rest of the family at tasting great!  Very soft, not too sweet


(I love too sweet, but not the rest of the family), no need for butter or anything!  Whoop whoop!  Ok, now I’m excited and ready to tackle more breads & more home cooking!
