OOOOOooooohhhhhh Buddy!! This is good. Like REALLY good... as in we ate the entire loaf in one day, LOL. It's an interesting flavor. It's not overwhelmingly cantaloupe-y (that's a word, right?) and it almost tastes like pumpkin bread but with a lighter type of sweetness. Does that make sense? If not, go back to we ate the entire loaf in one day. I'm making another one tomorrow :)
|This is all that was left 15 minutes after it came out of the Breadmaker hehehe|
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 1 cup sucanat (can use turbinado/brown sugar but it won't be "clean")
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 2/3 cups pureed cantaloupe
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (I used King Arthur's White Whole Wheat)
|Isn't it amazing that you push a button and this becomes perfect bread?!|
ONE: Buy a cheap breadmaker on Craigslist, LOL. Just kidding. Preheat the oven to 325. Lightly grease and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
TWO: In a large bowl combine the eggs, oil, vanilla, and pureed cantaloupe. Add in the remaining ingredients and stir until combined. Pour into prepared pan.
THREE: Bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Remove from pan and let cool on a wire rack before slicing.
