Almond Pumpkin Bread or Apple Sultana Spice Bread – same formula, different variations
Do you ever wish you had a few simple recipe formulas that you could learn, so that everyday meals and baking are so easy you hardly have to think about them? Basic formulas that can be changed around to use whatever ingredients you have on hand?
This is how I mostly cook. I have a basic formula in my head for a meal (or bread, smoothie, etc), then I ‘tweak’ it to make it a bit different every time. It really simplifies your cooking – and as you may know, ‘Simplify‘ is my word for the year!
A couple of weeks ago I was a speaker at The Wellness Breakthrough, and I taught a workshop called “Simplify Your Cooking”. I divided everyone into 5 groups and gave them each a basic formula for a simple recipe, with lots of possible variations: a one pot meal, a smoothie, a salad and dressing, a grain free bread, and chocolate. Each group had a tray of ingredients and either a Thermomix or a burner with a pot, cutting boards, etc. And they had 30 mins to make their recipe. The results were great, and it was awesome to see everyone thinking up different variations of the recipes! (And we had a lot of fun!!)
So in my newsletters I’ve been sharing some of these ‘Recipe Formulas‘, with lots of tips for ways to change them around. And since this Grain Free Bread recipe is very popular and I get asked about it a lot, I thought I’d better share it on the blog as well.
(If you have a suggestion for a recipe formula you’d like help with, just comment on this blog post, and then keep an eye on my newsletters, and you might see your suggestion pop up!)
So here it is – a recipe formula for making all sort of grain free breads, both sweet and savoury, muffins, loaves, fritters, fruit or veggies, nuts or seeds, with or without dairy, paleo, gaps, fodmaps… The possibilities of variations are endless! Have fun!!
Note: You can find fine sea salt for this recipe in my online store!
