More Healthy Breads!

I have completed my second group of breads in my HBin5 bake-a-long! First we made the Soft Whole Wheat sandwich bread. This one I baked in a loaf pan for a more traditional sandwich bread. I loved it toasted with a little butter and jam for breakfast. The addition of honey to the dough really made a big difference in flavor to me.

The second bread I made was the Apple Strudel Bread. Oh my, I could eat this one EVERY day! It is rolled out and covered with apples, raisins, cinnamon, walnuts and raw sugar, then rolled jelly-roll style into a loaf. You sprinkle raw sugar and cinnamon over the top of the loaf before baking for a crispy sweet crust. Here is a picture of when it came out of the oven.
And here is a cut slice of this yummy bread!
The third assignment was the Soft Whole Wheat Hamburger (or hot dog) buns. I shaped these into 6 mini boules and left them to rise... brushed them with some water and sprinkled with sesame seeds, and this is what came out of the oven -I thought they were very good, however, all of the sesame seeds fell off when you picked up your sandwich! I made mine into a Veggie Burger and Gary took some egg salad sandwiches to work. He reported back that he felt they were "too much", so I have two of these left in the freezer.
A good baking week I would say!

You did so well on all three recipes! I agree, I thought the apple strudel bread was great. I was surprised to read that so many didn't like it.

Your buns look beautiful.

I loved the mixture of this assignment. It was so much fun. All your breads look wonderful! Too bad you lost your sesame seeds. I didn't bother adding those due to family tastes. I did have extra buns too and made egg sammies for breakfast.

I could eat the apple strudel every day as well! In fact, I think one of the days, I ate 1/4 of the loaf!

Looks great.

My seeds fell off too! oh well. Great job on your breads!

Kim said...

Sounds like your apple strudel bread was a big hit! The loaf and hamburger buns look terrific!

Your loaves look great! The sesame seeds kept falling off of my hamburger buns too! Although I liked the flavor, I agree that the buns were a little bit too heavy.

I'm glad your apple strudel bread came out so well. The buns look great.

I posed a question about seed fall-off on http://groups.google.com/group/HBinFive/browse_thread/thread/6726fd6fa96ea334?hl=en and got some great tips.

I feel better about running out of sesame seeds and not being able to use them if they didn't bother sticking to the rolls anyhow! My daughter told me my rolls smelled like chicken and I couldn't figure out why. We realized she was associating the smell of the Italian herbs I used instead of sesame seeds with chicken that I normally use it on!
