Bread Bonanza

Normally I am the type to love kneading, also I am more of a savory bread-maker than a muffins and loaves girl, so it is a little out of character that I went and baked three no-knead, semi-sweet things in one week. But I figured I wanted to try a few different recipes from Veganomicon and also wanted a stock of bread in my freezer that can be eaten on their own, without spreads, should I so desire.

First I made Whole Wheat Soda Bread with Millet and Currants from Veganomicon. The amount of sugar given seemed a bit much to me, so I cut it to two tablespoons with excellent results. I remember having soda bread at my grandparents’ place when I was in London as a kid. This was every bit as good, if not better.

Then I made two bready things in one evening:

Applesauce Oatbran Muffins also from Veganomicon

(Reduced the sugar to one tablespoon.)

And finally, an oldie but goodie: Walnut Raisin Loaf from The Cranks Bible my first cookbook, which remains one of my favorites despite the fact that it is a bit heavy on the dairy for my current mostly vegan food preference. Most things are easy to veganize though, as was this. I just skipped the eggs and used rice milk instead of cow’s milk.
