CRANBERRY RAISIN BREAD RECIPE

Cranberry Raisin Bread Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
A quick bread laden with cranberries and raisin.  I always love to bake this Cranberry Raisin Bread that was easy and super delicious to  have for breakfast.

Cranberries need to be chopped then soak in boiling water together with raisin, sugar, baking soda  and butter for at  least 30 minutes.

Alternatively you can  bring it  to a  boil, add in  cranberries, raisin butter and sugar.  Mix in baking soda, let stand for 5 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and it is ready to go the oven.

Cranberries Raisin Bread rose perfectly and so moist.  They are  best served warm in thick slices with your favorite drink.

SPICED APPLE BREAD RECIPE

Spiced Apple Bread Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com
.
Beautiful and delicious, this Spiced Apple Bread is made with grated apple spiced with cinnamon and  nutmeg,

First of all, Eid Mubarak  to  those celebrating and kindly forgive me for my MIA due to  some important  family commitments.

This Spice Apple Bread is a perfect choice to  make if you have extra apple stock. It is remarkable easy to whip up.

Using box grater, the royal gala apple works well for this recipe.   You can use other apple varieties as well.  Although you can't see the apple but the taste is there when you take a  bite.

If you prefer, bake this in a loaf pan instead of cake pan,

CHEESY QUICK BREAD RECIPE

Cheesy Quick Bread Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

This mix and bake Cheesy Quick Bread was a nice change from a regular sweet treats I have baked.

Am a fan of quick and easy bread that can be whipped up for less than an hour.  Never used cheese in quick bread so this is my first trial.

Most of the recipe called for cheddar or other sharp tasting cheese but I only have cream cheese so make use of that. Only added half the amount of cheese required.

Since this is a savory bread, added only a tablespoon of sugar.  You may add more for a sweeter version.

This Cheesy Quick Bread turned out great, my kids loved it and the best part it is super easy to make.

IRISH BARMBRACK RECIPE

Irish Barmbrack Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A yeast free Irish tea bread (barmbrack), studded with dried fruit that was soaked in tea overnight or at least 4 hours.

A popular Irish  bread normally baked using yeast.  Today I tried a yeast free version. Used dried cranberries, apricot and sultana that have been soaked for 4 hours.

This Irish Barmbrack is uncomplicated to make if you plan properly.  It requires you to soak the dried fruit in black tea overnight in a refrigerator, the rest was just mix  and stir.

You can soak the fruits in any type of tea you like other than black tea.  Also this bread does not require extra brown/white sugar either as it is naturally sweetened by the dried fruits.

Irish Barmbrack is easily adapted to be a vegan recipe if you replace some of the ingredients :

whole milk  ------>   non dairy milk
1 egg           ------>   60 g mashed banana or mashed potato

Barmbrack is also eaten year round as a delicious treat at teatime when it is served with salty butter, a few days old brack  is also lovely toasted.

MOIST PUMPKIN BREAD RECIPE

Moist Pumpkin Bread Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A deliciously spiced and moist pumpkin bread recipe, no mixer required.

Moist Pumpkin Bread Recipe  has to be one of  my favorite quick breads.  I made it with fresh pumpkin from scratch.

This is the easiest to make by combining a dry and wet ingredients in one bowl with just a whisk.

This Moist Pumpkin Bread Recipe  is a pretty basic recipe, but fell free to add semi sweet chocolate chip, raisin, seeds or nuts to make it even full of good stuff.

FLAT TOP BANANA BREAD RECIPE

Flat Top Banana Bread Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


Flat Top Banana Bread Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


This classic Flat Top Banana Bread is always a favorite, whenever I have over ripen banana,  this is the bread I used to make.

It uses one and half cup of mashed banana, yogurt and butter to produce a moist and divine banana bread.  It took 50 minutes to bake it at 180 C.

Easily turned this basic banana bread to the next level by adding chocolate chips, peanut butter, coconut or blueberry.  So, if you're craving for a sweet, warm and super easy treat,  this Flat Top Banana Bread is the best option.

As this bread was extremely moist, place the bread  in an airtight plastic container then store in a refrigerator after 24 hours

VEGAN HOMEMADE DOUGHNUTS

Vegan Homemade Doughnuts Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A vegan and yeast free doughnuts for our tea time treat this week.   Found this recipe on Facebook.  It looks easy and quick to make.

These Vegan Homemade Doughnuts use vegan margarine and soy milk without yeast.   If you're not a vegan, you can use butter and fresh milk.

Original recipe calls for deep frying but I opt for baking instead.  Also did not coat them with sugar as we wanted a savory version.

The dough of these  Vegan Homemade Doughnuts are really sticky,  I added a tablespoon of flour to make it easier to shape by forming the dough into a ball, flatten it and make a hole with your floured finger or else roll the dough and use a doughnut cutter.

The doughnuts turned out very tasty despite they don't rise much as compared with  deep fried ones.  I think we need to add another teaspoon of baking powder if it is baked (original uses 1 teaspoon).

Vegan Homemade Doughnuts Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


VARIATIONS

Liquid can be replaced for fruit juice, you can even add chopped dried fruit.

For savory bread, add tomato juice instead of soy milk,  sun dried tomato may be added to the dough

Brush the dough with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt  and oregano for foccacia flavor.

FANTASTIC APRICOT BREAD

Fantastic Apricot Bread Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


Always love quick bread for breakfast or in between snack.   This week  tried my hand baking this Fantastic Apricot Bread.

This bread can be baked with yeast but am not in the mood to knead or spend time  waiting for it to rise.   So chosen this fruit laden quick bread.

Before you start, chopped dry apricot into small pieces but fairly visible.  Soak them in water for good 30 minutes. Squeeze out the water. keep aside.

This Fantastic Apricot Bread was really sweet so it doesn't need any glaze at all.  Have seen a few recipes with less sugar but uses  glaze after it has been baked.  Which one do you prefer, less sugar with glaze or without?

This bread received  high marks from my family, we are expecting some guest for  couple of days, have planned to bake it again.

BLUEBERRY OATMEAL BREAD

Blueberry Oatmeal Bread Recipe  @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


Most of us like to have oatmeal for breakfast but sometimes you feel bored eating the same thing again and again.  So I incorporated rolled oat and adding fresh blueberries for making this Blueberry Oatmeal Bread.

Oatmeal is a healthier choice but tasteless to eat on its own.   The benefits of  rolled oat can be enjoyed in  yeast/quick bread, muffins, breakfast bars, granola, biscuit, pancake, oatmeal burger and crumble.   Include  this natural power food regularly that contains minerals, vitamins, fiber,  lipid and numerous health benefits in your diet.  The fiber in oatmeal makes you feel full through out the day.   Fiber also eases constipation and control blood sugar.

Some packets of instant oatmeal, loaded with sugar  as much as 8 tsp per serving and high in sodium. Always check the label  to see what you are getting.

For healthier choice, replace half of plain flour with wholemeal flour and easily turns it into dairy free by using oil in place of  butter also milk with soy milk, almond or rice milk.

This Blueberry Oatmeal Bread were delicious.  Very filling with the oatmeal in them.  came out super moist too.

*PUMPKIN BANANA BREAD*

Pumpkin Banana Bread Recipe @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com

Easy to make Pumpkin Banana Bread gets an extra flavor and beautiful color with addition of the pumpkin. The pumpkin not only adds flavor but also it adds fiber and allowing the bread to call for less oil while still maintaining the perfect, most texture.

I had used homemade pumpkin puree but canned pumpkin should work too. This bread turned out great. For best result, slice when it is completely cooled or  refrigerated the bread overnight wraps in plastic wrap.

It was delicious on its own but with frosting it creates a beautiful treat!
