Welcome to the 19th HBinFive Bread Braid

by Michelle on September 14, 2010

I am beginning to get my baking mojo back and I think it’s because of the gorgeous Fall weather we’ve been having. Who wouldn’t want to bake and fill the house with wonderful aromas of cinnamon and apples!!

This week for HBinFive our assignment was one loaf of Quinoa Bread and one loaf of Whole Grain Maple Oatmeal Bread. And I had some fun with the Maple Oatmeal, instead of a loaf of bread, I made Cinnamon Buns. Also instead of using water in the Oatmeal dough, I substituted Apple Juice and drizzled the buns with a simple Maple Glaze and sprinkled with chopped pecans.

***If you would like to add some delicious fruit to your fall baking, don’t forget to enter my Dried Fruit Giveway. The winner will receive 1 lb of Dried Blueberries and 1 lb of Dried Angelino Red Plums!

Simple Maple Glaze
Recipe developed in the kitchen of BigBlackDog

1/2 c. Powdered Sugar
2-3 TBL Maple Syrup

Optional:
1/4 tsp Vanilla

Put the Sugar in a small bowl and gradually add the Maple Syrup until the glaze is pouring consistency. You can add more Sugar or Syrup depending on desired consistency. If you would like a sweeter glaze add the 1/4 tsp Vanilla.

The Quinoa Bread was fabulous and is definitely in my Top Ten Bread recipes. We loved it. I made 1/2 recipe and made two baguettes for Brandy-flavored Crostini which we enjoyed while watching Monday Night Football.

    I enjoyed making both of these, I was rushing ahead but the time passed and I didnt yet get onto the next one :) which looks good also.

    Maybe the glaze would have helped the oatmeal bread, I did not like it that much, though it was better toasted with some carrot cake jam. Your Quinoa baguettes look terrific.

    Your HBinFive posts inspired me to get the book from the library and try the master recipe – it was so easy! I linked up my post :).

    What a great idea to add the apple juice to the maple oatmeal bread. I have that dough put together and sitting in the fridge waiting for me to mess with it. We also absolutely loved the quinoa bread!!!

    Michelle, I’m definitely going to make the quinoa bread (I’ve actually had it on my list to try) and the brandy crostini will be made this weekend- they sound amazing! I LOVE Fall!

    The quinoa bread was our favorite too!

    Your breads always looks so delicious! I saved my Maple Oatmeal Bread to see what other people did, I’m going to copy you (hope you don’t mind) and make rolls too–that is, if I can roll out the dough. Looks wonderful as always!

  • Cristie September 15, 2010 at 4:56 pm

    Michelle, your maple rolls look so tasty! I have some left over dough that I am going to use to make them. The glaze sounds amazing. I am glad to be back. I’ve been trying to stay away from yeast , what a hard thing to do when you love bread the way I do.

    Your Maple buns look delicious and so do the Quinoa baquettes. I didn’t get a chance to make the Quinoa bread yet, but it’s on my list.

  • Joanne September 16, 2010 at 6:25 am

    Fall is the perfect excuse to throw maple into everything! These cinnamon buns look SO tasty!

  • Elwood September 18, 2010 at 11:50 am

    While I was looking at the photo of your Maple Oatmeal buns I swear I could smell them. Now, that’s a good image! I really liked the quinoa bread too and thought your baguettes looked great.

    Wow! Why would I ever just expect you to make a loaf of bread? You always manage to do something interesting with your dough! You’re definitely into Fall. I’m still hanging on to the last week of Summer.

  • Melanie September 20, 2010 at 7:10 pm

    Those cinnamon buns look awesome!! You are so creative. The quinoa loaf looks very good too.
