It looks More Like....

Any ideas? I watched some Aussie bake some bread on YouTube, but maybe I got liter and the actual quantity mixed up. Never did resemble dough. More like a pancake batter. Looking at other videos after this failure, one cup of water is mentioned, or just add enough to get a thick consistency. Geez, I don't know how that Aussie did it, but his turned out okay.

Oh well, first try. I can always slice it horizontally and get some bread slices out of it?

Noooo. This one is headed for the trash... Salty tasting and gooey like it hadn't been baked long enough. 375 for 30 minutes or so I thought.

What was that recipe? It was called an easy baking recipe.  Considering he baked two loaves I cut everything in half.

(1) teaspoon baking powder
(16) oz water


3 1/2 cups flour (rice--maybe that was the problem)
(1) teaspoon salt
(2) teaspoon vegetable oil

I see no yeast others mention.

I did let it "get ready" or try to rise before complete baking. Not much good.

Btw, it's almost been a week since I started this healthy eating kick, Result is loss of five pounds. I haven't starved myself, nor have I cut out all the questionable stuff out, particularly at lunch time\by eating about 400 calories of lays chips along with a sandwich. My exercise regime hasn't changed either. I may spend two to three hours out in the garden and I still hit the couch after lunch and dinner meals.

  1. There is something to leaving off sugar and processed foods and eating good food. Men do lose it quicker than women so congrats on the weight loss. You feel better right?

    As for that bread? I am not sure but that is alot of liquid. Sounds like a muffin bread recipe minus the eggs.

    I got my brother on my healthy eating kick but he found he had to have some bread, real bread... not gluten free or grain free... He got the gitters after a few days with no bread and he found he needs that carb big time to keep him going during the day.
    So if you would like a good easy yeast bread recipe you can use the one I have listed on my blog for Herb Rolls, only leave off the herbs and instead of making rolls, just put the dough in a loaf pan. Bake on 400 for 30 minutes till its nice and brown on top. All ovens vary so you will have to keep watch.

    Here is the link

    Congrats on the loss and eating better. Stay COOL and hydrated too, this heat can sneak up on ya.
