Sunday morning I made a delicious breakfast. Unfortunately I didn’t take a picture and this picture is the closest I could find. I made Raisin, apple, oat bread the night before and made French toast out of it in the morning with a cranberry sauce instead of syrup. Did I mention it was delicious?
Here is the recipe for the bread. Like I said earlier, I made it the night before using my bread maker.
1 -2/3 cup of apple juice (I actually used apple cider)
4 ¼ cups bread flour (I used ½ & ½ wheat & bread flour)
1 tbsp Sugar (I used raw honey, you can also use brown sugar to make it a little healthier)
2 Tbsp Melted Butter
1 tsp Cinnamon
2/3 cup Oats
3 tsp Rapid Rise yeast for the Quick setting
When it beeped I added 1 cup of Raisins and 1 cup of Apples (you are suppose to use dried but I didn’t)
The next morning I made French Toast out of them, if you aren’t familiar with making French Toast, here is an easy Recipe –
¾ cup milk
1 tbsp Sugar (once again I used the raw honey)
¼ tsp Vanilla
1. Beat eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla with beater until smooth.
2. Heat griddle or skillet over medium – low hear or to 375. Grease griddle with butter if you need to.
3. Dip your bread into the egg mixture. Place on Griddle. Cook about 4 minutes on each side until golden brown.
Cranberry Sauce – I made this just like I would for my Thanksgiving dinner…
1 bag off cranberries
1 cup of Sugar (I used Raw Honey)
1 cup of water
Cook it down, takes about 10 mins. You may want to add more sugar, I like it a little tart.
