creole

WHAT YOU NEED:

1/2 cup warm water

2 teaspoons instant yeast

6 -8 cups white flour,

1 1/2 cups coconut milk,

1/2 cup coconut oil

2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon salt

INSTRUCTIONS:

**Mix together the warm water, yeast, 2 teaspoons of sugar, and 2 TABLESPOONS of flour in a small bowl and set aside for 10 minutes. (Unusual to put flour into proofing.).

**Warm milk, oil, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and salt in the microwave for about 20 seconds-stir together and set aside. Don’t let the mixture boil, you just want to heat it up a bit.

**Sift 5 cups of flour into a large bowl.

**Once the milk mixture has cooled enough that you can comfortably stick a finger in it, mix it into the yeast.

**Add all wet ingredients to the flour.

**Mix with a wooden spoon until a dough forms. If sticky, add flour until you have a dough that you can knead.

**Dust your counter with flour and knead the dough until smooth, about 5-8 minutes. If the dough becomes sticky as you knead just sprinkle with flour as required. You may have to add up to a cup of flour at this stage depending on the humidity of your kitchen.

**Put in greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth and let rise until double in size.

**Punch down and knead for two or three minutes.

**Make into two large or six small round balls.

**Place on a greased pan-let rise again, bake at 400 F/205 C for 30-35 minutes until the tops brown and the bottom of a loaf, when tapped, sounds hollow.

Mmm Mmm Monday: Granola


Bowl #1
3 cups oats
3 tablespoons brown sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cinnamon

Bowl #2
1/3 cup Hot Mama’s Orange Blossom Honey
¼ cup Canola Oil ( I prefer to use Olive Oil)
1 teaspoon Vanilla

Mix all of the ingredients in bowl #1 together

Mix all of the ingredients in bowl #2 together

Combine both bowls together and spread onto a baking sheet.

Bake on the center rack in the oven at 300 degrees. After 15 minutes
Remove the baking sheet and stir. I would suggest that you use a
spatula to turn the oats. Return to the oven and bake for a
further 20 to 30 minutes. Oats should be light brown. Be careful
not to overcook.

Remove from the oven and stir the oats around so that it does not
stick to the baking sheet and which will allow it to cool down.

Optional Ingredients to be added after it is cool:-
dried fruits – such as coconut, raisins, nuts, M&M’s

Store in an airtight container or in the refrigerator.
