Today has been so much better! Despite the fact that I woke up late and did not get my full workout in...my head space has been so much better! I will just get some extra in this weekend! Besides, sometimes...you just need the sleep! The illustrator
had a meeting today and he asked if I wanted to go with him. The people are clients of his that own some restaurants and since the meetings are always laid back and the people are so easy to chat with, I took him up on the trip! It was so nice to talk to the outside world about things I love...food and beverage! Anyway, it was a beautiful afternoon and we took in some vitamin D along with some fun conversation...just what I needed!
Even though the illustrator
showed me a good day, I have decided to disown my family. My favorite child (the little boy from next door) took some of the strawberry bread to his family and they liked it...so there! I kept eating it yesterday...everytime I walked by, I cut another piece off. So, I am sharing it. Not to say that I won't play around with it some, but that is just what I do. So...
1 cup white rice flour
1 cup brown rice flour
1 TBSP baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
20 drops vanilla NuNaturals stevia (or 2 TBSP pure cane sugar)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 1/2 cup almond milk
1 TBSP apple cider vinegar
5 oz pureed strawberries + 10 drops vanilla NuNaturals stevia (or 1 TBSP pure cane sugar)
1 TBSP pure cane sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 inch bread pan with cooking spray...you may want to line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper and then spray that.
Combine the almond milk and the vinegar in a measuring cup and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. Next add the stevia thru the milk mixture. Mix just until combined. Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan. Drop half of the strawberry mixture on top of the batter using a tablespoon to get it evenly distributed. Take a knife and swirl the strawberry mixture through out the batter. Pour the remaining batter on top and do the same with the rest of the strawberries. Sprinkle the top with the tablespoon of pure cane sugar. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool and ENJOY!
Do you have a recipe that you really want to work on? Do you eat your failures or do you throw them away? I eat them...I can't waste food. Besides, even if you start eating with your eyes, sometimes ugly food tastes good!
