A little something for Monday

This weekend, I did some slow-cooker experimenting. 

First up on the list of delicious recipes, honey whole wheat bread. 

Here's what you'll need:

3 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups warm whole milk
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 package active dry yeast
3/4 teaspoon salt

1. Spray 1-quart casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Combine 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour, milk, 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, honey, oil, yeast, and salt in large bowl. Beat at low speed of electric mixer for 2 minutes.

2. Add remaining 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour and 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup all-purpose flour. If mixer has difficulty mixing dough, mix in remaining flours with wooden spoon. Transfer to prepared dish.

3. Place dish in slow cooker; cover and cook on HIGH about 3 hours or until edges are browned. 

4. Remove from slow cooker. Let stand 5 minutes.

Then eat! Nothing like 4 quick steps, leading to honey wheat heaven in your mouth.

One last thing to leave you with today. 

I also spent LOTS of time this weekend working on my room and it is almost finished. I am so excited about how it's coming together. And I'm dying to give you guys a sneak peak! 
So for now...

What did you spend the weekend doing?

Yours Truly,

Oh! Honey + whole wheat...I like this combo! I'll have to give it a try soon. I have been trying to make a better effort at eating more whole wheat and not as much white. It's a constant battle ;) Can't wait to see your room!

Kate said...

This looks so delicious! I've been trying to teach myself to cook, but I'm naturally a better baker! So far I've only made banana bread, but I want to try other kinds and this looks amazing!

I just stumbled over your blog and I absolutely adore it!
