It’s been a while since I have posted a bread recipe. So I decided to bake one of my favorite bread and share the recipe with you – Quick Honey Flaxseed Bread.
I always keep a bag of ground flaxseed in my pantry, not because of its health benefits but because I like the value it brings to certain foods. For example, remember a while back I posted a Cornmeal recipe and mentioned in the post that Flaxseed affects the consistency of the cornmeal when cold. If you cook cornmeal or polenta, you might remember that it must be eaten right away otherwise it becomes a bit hard like a cake. This is not the same for this bread. Quick Honey Flaxseed Bread is light in texture and a bit chewy because of the elasticity of the ground flaxseed when baked.
This bread is so delicious and very quick to make that it will leave you wanting more. If you are planning on making it, please don’t substitute crème honey for liquid honey. It will be a waste of ingredients. I don’t think you want to lose 1 cup of ground Flaxseed as it is a very expensive ingredient to buy.
In several of my meat posts I mentioned how I enjoy dunking my bread in a good meat sauce. I am a dunker and I admit it. And this bread is another reason why it is a one of the best dunking bread – if I may say that. Is that good English? Oh well! If not, then I invented it. LOL … I like the sweetness of the bread mixed with the spicy meat sauce. For one reason or another, when sweet meets spicy it is like everlasting love. The same eternal love we see in many Disney cartoons. You know which one I am talking about. A prince meets a princess; they fall in love, get married and live happily ever after. But this bread complies with a spicy sauce; they fall in love in the plate, get married in the mouth and live happily ever after in the stomach. Wow!!! Some of you may be thinking that it a corny joke. Indeed Gemma! I am hearing all the voices in my head right now and can imagine the funny faces you, my readers are making. I guess I feel a bit silly today. Hey! I am allowed to feel stupid once in a while. Another excellent remedy for relieving stress.
So let’s stop being silly and go in your pantry to shop for the ingredients and if for any reason you don’t have them and don’t feel like going to the supermarket, shop at Amazon. If you have a Prime membership, it is even better, free delivery and two days delivery. Happy shopping and happy baking!
