The second I saw Tracy's gorgeously pillowy High Calcium Bread, I knew I had to try it. I'm a sucker for a soft, high-rising bread and the recipe is really simple, calling for items I always have in my pantry.
Mine didn't rise quite as beautifully, but they look, smell and taste awesome! I'm eating an end-piece right now, smeared with Earth Balance. This bread has a very soft, moist crumb and it's got to be high in calcium with all that molasses in there. The only thing I might change is to increase the salt just a touch. Maybe by 1/2 tsp.
I also decided to use up some rhubarb by making the Rhubarb Cake from Meagan's blog, except in cupcake form. It's always great to see a recipe that uses barley flour. It's so underappreciated! Sadly, because of my choice of pans they just barely got cooked all the way through before the sugar in the batter started to burn. I should have stuck with Meagan's method of using the cake pan! Rest assured, they will be eaten, no matter how ugly.
I'll definitely be trying this recipe again, because I LOVE the idea of a cake-y rhubarb muffin.
And because it'll use up more rhubarb.
I also made some granola yesterday. Just the usual PB and maple granola. It looked especially pretty in the afternoon light, I thought.
