I was getting extremely bored yesterday afternoon and decided to bake something. That is when I came across this recipe in a fellow blogger’s site. The original recipe called for dates...which I did not have at home. I remembered the raisins in my pantry and felt that they would be the right substitute. Another change was the addition of nutmeg, which I love. I also had to make do with baking powder alone as I did not have baking soda...the final result was really delicious; so here goes.
Baking powder – 1tsp
Salt – ¼ tsp
Raisins – ¼ cup
Honey – ¼ cup
Milk – ¾ cup
Oil - 3 tbsps (I used olive oil)
Nutmeg – a pinch
In a bowl, mix all the wet ingredients (milk, honey and oil). In a different bowl, mix the dry ingredients (nutmeg, flour, baking powder and salt). Preheat the oven to 3500F and grease the baking pan with oil/butter. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix well. Fold in the raisins and you will a sticky batter. Don’t worry, that’s how it should be.
Pour into the greased pan and bake for about 30 minutes. Mine was ready in 25 minutes, so please keep an eye on it. If a toothpick or knife comes out clean, then your bread is done. Bon Appétit.
