Another recipe from the mix cookbook. This one is not convincing me about this cookbook. It’s moving closer to the Goodwill pile. It was ok, but not what I was expecting. I didn’t read it close enough and when I saw quick bread, I was expecting a regular loaf of bread. This was more like coffee cake which used a different mix in the cookbook. It was kind of like a big sugar cookie.
Ok – here is the ingredients all mixed sitting next to my sifter – a normal size sifter. The full recipe makes like 15 cups. how exactly does the author expect a normal person to sift through all that??
The author says to pour the batter into a pan……really??? Pour?? I checked about 5 times to make sure I added the right liquid amount. I don’t see how this could ever be poured.
Slicing was a little iffy, but that might have been because it was still warm. I left one slice alone and buttered one. I let it cool and wrapped it in foil. Next day? Hard as a rock. And can I just comment that 4 cups is NOT an appropriate serving amount for a slicable object?? Let me just crumble it up and put it in a cup 😐
I still have a bunch of the dry mix left. I guess I can try making some of the other variations. I could throw in some raisins and cinnamon. I really want to make it more like a batter. Maybe add some milk to it and mix it all up. I don’t know what it will do, but I want more of a cake texture. I am not saying that this is bad, but who needs this much sweet bread mix? Why no regular bread mix? I really want to look up the brand that is referenced in the book to show the savings difference.
I still want to try the pancake and biscuit mix. Silly, right? I don’t know why, I just really want this cookbook to redeem itself. I don’t know if it will be enough to keep it on the shelf, though.
