High Fiber Whole Wheat Cinnamon Bread

Posted Nov 03 2012 12:54pm
Introductions can be awkward, they can be hard, and they can be the deciding factor in many relationships due to the importance of first impressions. I won’t try to pretend that introducing a recipe is any easier. In fact, it is more difficult to introduce a baked good than it is a person.

I can’t very well say “Sally Reader meet my friend Mr. Baked Good. I met him the other day over breakfast”.

However it comes out, I would like to introduce you to Mr. High Fiber Whole Wheat Cinnamon bread. And although I did meet him over breakfast the other day, what I really want to tell you is that he is a high fiber, single serving, microwaveable breakfast recipe. What more could you need to know?

Category Mark Comments Overall Grade
Convenience
A little bit of preparation due to letting the yeast flour mixture sit overnight, but it gives the load a real bready taste and is totally worth the effort.

B+

Health
Not typically as high protein as many of my recipes, but I made this the day after my half marathon when I was still craving carbs. The stats are approx: 24g carbs, 1g fat, 9g protein
Taste
This is not meant to be a cake or I would have added something sweet and something oily. This recipe is a cinnamon bread recipe and taste exactly that way. The yeasty taste surprisingly reminded me a bit of doughnuts too!
Texture
Your microwave will cook this differently depending on what size dish you use. A smaller dish may leave the center very moist.
General Comments I’ve been on a toasting spree and have been toasting almost everything. This cinnamon bread toasts up perfectly leaving the edges nice and crispy and a perfect base for butter.
Now, I will try never to personify my edibles again. Although I must say if makes like much more fun :)

For real, do you find introductions with people difficult or stressful?
