Stupidly Busy, Arguably Vegan Bread (banana-honey-corn-rye-apple)

"James, why is this bread so stupidly complicated?"
"I don't know, why is your face so stupidly complicated?"

Banana-honey-corn-rye-apple loaf:
Stuff to have:
  • 3 cups rye flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup corn flour
  • 1 slightly heaping tablespon baking powder

  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • two bananas
  • 1 cup warm water

  • 1 apple

  • Pre-heat your oven to 350ºF
    Combine dry stuff in a bowl, mixing till it's mixed.
    Combine wet stuff in a separate bowl, mixing and mashing until mixed and mashed.
    Make a well in the dry stuff, add the wet stuff to it, mix it until it forms a moderately thick batter-dough hybrid.
    Scoop one cup each of the batter into two loaf pans, then peel, core, and slice the apples. Stick a layer of apples on top of each of the loaves, making sure to leave some room around the edge of the pan so that the apple slices aren't touching the pan directly. Split the rest of the batter in covering the two loaves, then bake for thirty to forty-five minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

    I had bananas and honey I needed to use, and a dish I needed to return to a friend that I didn't want to send back empty. This is kind of a re-hash of the banana-corn-rye, just a little bit sillier and done on a larger scale. Probably best for sweet breakfast stuff or a snack in the evening.

    So I am going to be at the zine fair at the starlight Saturday. Doors open at 1PM. Be there if you want a zine and/or a croissant.

    So I made croissant on the weekend. I didn't really follow the recipe as I was lazy and didn't have that much time, but they came out OK. A little dense on account of not letting the yeast get up to speed, and they didn't puff perfectly because I got sloppy and some butter took emergency evasive maneuvers all over the counter, but all in all, a delicious success. If I have time I will make some for the zine fair.

    Take one on chocolate ginger roll-up cookies:
    -use chocolate dough, not just chocolate chip cookie dough so as to make it noticeable that they are swirly
    -don't even bother with chocolate chips, it makes them harder to slice
    -use more ginger! 1tbsp fresh ginger is not enough!

    Zine fair. Saturday. Noon. Starlight.
