Two recipes for Aileen and Lisa;)

A lot of foods I used to eat I do not eat any longer and I’m feeling much better since then. Feeling much better is one thing, life being a lot more difficult another. Nevertheless, I tried a few “classics” in an updated version. Here are the recipes:

 Olive Bread

250g Wholegrain Spelt Flour
1/2tsp Salt
1tsp Quick yeast
1tsp Honey
175ml Warm Water
3tbsp Olive Oil
75g Pitted olives

1. In a large bowl mix flour, salt, yeast and honey.
2. Add water to teh mixture.
3. While dough is still craggy add the oil and knead until it feels smooth.
4. Leave dough in bowl, covered with a cloth and let rest in a draught free place until double in size or at least notably bigger.
5. Turn dough on a floured surface, add the olives and knead for several minutes.
6.Put it into a 1lg bread tin or place it on an oiled baking sheet.
7. Leave to rise for 25 mins. (I usually just put it into the oven while it preheats)
8. Bake at 220C for 35-40 mins.

Apple Cinnamon Muffins

300g (2 cups) spelt flour
1 tbs baking powder
2 tsp ground cinnamon
150g honey
2 medium cooking apples, cored, peeled, chopped
125g (3/4 cup) seedless raisins
125g sunflower
2 eggs, lightly whisked
185mls milk (I replaced that with almond milk)

1. Preheat oven to 180C.
2. In a bowl mix all dry ingredients.
3. In another bowl mix all wet ingredients.
4. Combine both mixtures and stir with a large spoon until just combined. It is important that the ingredients are only just combined. If the mixture is over-mixed, the cooked muffins will have a tough texture.
5.  Spoon mixture in muffin pan and bake for 20 mins.

Double the recipe to make between 24-36 muffins. This recipe is for 12, but that depends on how much dough you put in for each muffin.

Guten Appetit;)
