I am coming ever closer to putting up items in my etsy shop after months of baking, testing, re-testing, and sorting out packaging and what not. Since I still have a bit of tweaking to do with some recipes, I figured I would share a little sneak peek of what is to come. Enjoy!
I usually eat some muesli or granola for breakfast, but sometimes I want something a little fancier. I saw the last of the summer blueberries at the store the other day and decided to take advantage of them and make a nice loaf of breakfast bread. It’s quite sad that summer produce is being phased out, but I am hopeful that it means cooler temperatures (at least cooler than 107 degrees) will be heading my way.
Lemon Berry Breakfast Bread
makes one loaf
1 1/2 cups spelt flour (or whole wheat pastry flour)
3/4 cup barley flour
1 tbsp arrowroot starch
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp fine grain sea salt
1/3 cup raw sugar
the zest from one lemon
2 cups berries ( I used 1 cup of blueberries and 1 of cup dewberries)
1/4 cup grapeseed oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup of buttermilk (or almond milk, soy milk, etc.)
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and grease a 9 inch loaf pan. Line it with parchment paper as well.
In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together the flours, arrowroot, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, and lemon zest. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the oil, eggs, vanilla, and buttermilk. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry until they are about half-way mixed in. Add in the berries and mix until everything is just combined, being careful not to crush the berries. Pour the batter into your prepared pan and bake for 30 to 40 minutes until the top is golden and a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool the bread in the pan for about 10 minutes, then turn it out onto a rack to cool completely. Slice it up and enjoy!
