Fast and Festive Holiday Bread

Fast and Festive Holiday Bread

Who doesn’t love the smell of freshly baked bread? But who has time for all that kneading and rising? Today I’d like to share with you a quick, healthy, and delicious bread recipe I created that is perfectly suited for the holidays: Quick Cranberry Multigrain Bread. It can be prepared in 5 minutes, although it takes a little while to bake while you’re busy with other things. It will also send the wonderful smell of freshly baked bread wafting into your home in time for any holiday parties you might be hosting. And, wrapped in a new, festive tea towel, it also makes a great holiday gift. Enjoy!

Quick Cranberry Multigrain Bread

1 cup whole spelt or whole wheat flour
3/4 cup unbleached white flour
1/2 cup multigrain cereal
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 eggs
1-1/4 cup soymilk, rice milk or almond milk (whichever you prefer)
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup canola oil (cold-pressed organic preferably)
1/2 cup dried organic cranberries (be sure to use organic dried cranberries found in health food stores since non-organic ones typically contain sulphites.)

Mix dry ingredients (excluding dried cranberries) together in a food processor or mixer. In a separate bowl, whisk liquid ingredients together. Slowly pour into dry ingredients. Mix. Add dried cranberries and mix briefly. Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes.
