I feel pretty dim right about now, but it never occurred to me that I could bake quick breads and cakes in my bread machine. What can I say? Here was my poor little bread machine languishing on the counter feeling neglected. Then today I decided to bake some bread in there and took the instruction booklet out. Lo and behold I discovered that not only can I bake regular baking powder/salt type quick breads, but it says I can even bake cakes!
I got straight to work and made a Cranberry Nut bread.
Can I just say, "DELICIOUS"! It came out very moist and tender, too. Yummy. It's not too sweet and the dried cranberries give it a nice tartness.
Here's the recipe is you'd like to try it.
CRANBERRY NUT QUICK BREAD
1 cup milk (room temperature)
2 tablespoons cooking oil
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup dried cranberries (the recipe says "coarsely chopped", but I didn't chop these)
1 cup chopped walnuts
Place all liquids in bottom of bread pan, then all remaining ingredients. Set the control to "Quick Bread", and that's all there is to it.
My kind of cooking on a hot summer day!
On the sewing front, I'm working on a new quilt for our daughter's friend Nikki who has a birthday later this week.
Said daughter was having a bit of a laze this morning with boyfriend's dog to keep her company.
And the cats - what can I say? They were doing what they always do - just as they please!
Have a great day!
Hugs and kisses,
