Strawberry Rhubarb Pie is my entry. It was amazing.
Out of the oven; passed the toothpick test. Now to wait until it cools down to apply the glaze.
Marie made this, i just took a picture.
Verdict: I'm definitely making this again. The bread is already fairly sweet without the glaze, so I might try it without that next time to see which I like better, but it surpassed my expectations as is. 10/10.
As for the recipe:
Prep Time - 15 minutes
Cook Time – 50-55 minutes
Cool Down Time – 30 minutes
Total Time - 1 hour 35-40 minutes
Servings – Guessing about 10 here
• 3/4 cup granulated sugar
• 1/2 cup milk
• 1/2 cup oil
• 1 large egg
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or almond extract)*
• 2 cups all-purpose flour
• 2 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 2 jars maraschino cherries** (10 ounces each)
• 2 cups powdered sugar
• 2 tablespoons melted butter
• 1/3 cup maraschino cherry juice
• 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, stir together the sugar, milk, oil, egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined.
Drain the maraschino cherries, reserving the juice for the glaze. Coarsely chop the cherries in a food processor or with a knife. Gently fold the cherries into the batter.
Pour the bread batter into a greased 9"x5" bread pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes. Do the toothpick test (For those who may not know what that means, it means a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread should come out clean). Allow the bread to cool for 10 minutes, then remove the bread to a wire rack or other appropriate surface to cool completely.
To make the glaze, combine the powdered sugar, melted butter, cherry juice and almond extract in a small bowl. Mix until it is smooth.
Once the bread is cool, spread the glaze on top of the bread. Slice and serve.
*The recipe I have notes to add an extra teaspoon of vanilla or almond extract to the bread batter (along with the wet ingredients) for an extra boost of flavor, especially if you are not putting the glaze on top.
**Many maraschino cherry brands come without red dye in the cherries. If you pick up a jar like this, your bread will not be pink. If you want pink bread, be sure that the cherries you use actually have red coloring in it. You can always add additional red coloring if you want the bread to have more of a pink appearance.
Mmmm I was wondering if those were cherries. Sounds amazing
Also drooling over the pie and cheesecakes mmmmm lactose, I miss you.
Babka Beer Bread!
I don't have the before pics, but this was pizza I made.
It was flour, sugar, yeast, salt, and olive oil.
Mozz mix and some peps, it was good.
My pizza is vegan because cheese upsets the tum tum
I know it's over but I had to share because I'm really proud of my sourdough pizza crusts. :*
Also I made a butthole
Well @Massalinie definitely wins for sheer amount of baked goods-- I'm going to her house-- the winner of the random drawing is @MrTRiot . Send me your email and I will send you your giftcard.
Late to the party but made my first sourdough bread today. Turned out pretty good. Very satisfying sandwich.
omg that bread looks fucking incredible. goddddamnnnnn dude
Second attempt, much better. Got a much better grasp of kneading, and just the process in general.
This weeks is definitely my best. Added a little more starter to my dough, proofed in a smaller bowl, all trying to get better rise and shape. Worked out.
I've split my starter in to three, so I have enough to do some experimental things. Bagels, additions to the bread, etc.
it's perfect. Damn.
This means when you come work on my house you are going to bake some goodies!
You're the perfect house husband.
