Granola Bread, page 459, June 14, 2015

I ended up staying home this weekend and as I am finally feeling able to get around, I though it was time to bake another loaf for gifting.  I will be taking this Granola Bread (along with a jar of the Caramel Apple Jam I made last year) to the Oceanside Animal Clinic in Seaview.  They have been so supportive, and I know they truly care about my fur-babies. I have to go in to the office on Monday and will take them some bread as a thank you for being so great.

Granola is another one of those great things that I can’t eat.  Luckily, I was able to find some in the bulk bins at the grocery store, so I only had to buy the amount I needed for this recipe.

Ingredients for this loaf are:  1 1/8 cups buttermilk, 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, 2 tablespoons honey, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, 2 1/8 cup bread flour, 1 1/4 cups granola (the granola I bought contains cranberries, coconut, raisins, almonds, walnuts and pecans), 3/4 cup whole wheat flour, 1 tablespoon gluten, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 2 teaspoons SAF yeast. I am using the Medium and Basic settings on my machine for this loaf.

FullSizeRenderThis loaf rose up nicely and has a wonderful cinnamon scent.  I decided to slice this up and deliver it on a plate.  As you can see, bits of nuts and dried fruit are visible throughout the loaf.  The texture is soft, but the bread is on the heavy side.  I will ask them to give me their thoughts.

They were so great, they even washed the plate for me when they were done; that wasn’t necessary.  They did let me know they are willing to act as guinea pigs again whenever I need them too.

“Like the nuts!”

“Very good”

“Good”

“Yumm yumm! Love it!”

” Good – A little dry. Thank you!”

“Yummy”

“Good!”

Thanks again, to the staff at Oceanside Animal Clinic.  You all have been so wonderful, and continue to be.
