Bread

I have talked to many of the guests of the clinic about bread before. When talking about not having bread in the house, a sudden look of fear and panic sweep over many of the clinic's guests. So today, to soften the concept of not having bread, I have some alternative recipes. You do have to be prepared that these aren't going to produce your typical loaf of bread. Yet I think they are a good stepping stone to help you along your way.

Flax Seed Bread

Ingredients:

  • Flax Seed Meal  300g
  • Baking Powder 1tbsp
  • Salt  1tsp
  • Sugar  2tbsp
  • Eggs  5 Beaten
  • Water  180ml
  • Oil  120ml

Preheat oven to 350F/180C/Gas Mark 4

Method
1) Mix dry ingredients well -- a whisk works well.

2) Add wet to dry, and combine well. Make sure there aren't obvious strings of egg white hanging out in the batter.

3) Let batter set for 2 to 3 minutes to thicken up some (leave it too long and it gets past the point where it's easy to spread.)

4) Pour batter onto pan. Because it's going to tend to mound in the middle, you'll get a more even thickness if you spread it away from the center somewhat, in roughly a rectangle an inch or two from the sides of the pan (you can go all the way to the edge, but it will be thinner).

5) Bake for about 20 minutes, until it springs back when you touch the top and/or is visibly browning even more than flax already is.

6) Cool and cut into whatever size slices you want. You don't need a sharp knife; I usually just cut it with a spatula.

Some other awesome additions are pumpkin, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Great topped with almond or peanut butter!
