Herman Sweet Bread Recipe

Herman Sweet Bread with Craisins and Walnuts

I have made several cakes and sweet breads with Herman. This recipe is by far the easiest white bread I have ever made. It takes five days to get your Herman starter going, and after that you can cook every other day using Herman if you wish. Just stir and feed Herman to maintain a steady supply. When tired of Herman, he can be frozen and thawed to start again. You can also substitute cheeses and herbs for a savory bread, leaving out the sugar, cinnamon, fruit and nuts.

2 cups Herman Starter
3 cups Bob's Red Mill Whole Grain Flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoons salt
3 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs beaten

1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup granulated sugar
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup craisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Oven Temp: 325°
Recipe Cooking Time: 40 to
Pan Type: 2 Loaf Pans

Herman Sweet Bread Directions

Preheat Oven.
In a large bowl combine Herman Sweet Sourdough Starter, flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder and eggs until well blended. Knead dough in bowl for 5 to 7 minutes or until mixture is smooth. Let rise in warm place until doubled. Punch down. On a lightly floured surface, press dough into a 10 x 20 inch rectangle. Combine melted margarine, sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Spread mixture over dough. Sprinkle with walnuts or raisins, if desired. Starting on long side, roll up dough, jellyroll fashion. Press ends together to make a seam. Cut in half to make two loaf size pieces and place in two greased, loaf pans. Allow bread to rise until double in size. Bake in a preheated 325 F oven (165 degree C) for 40 to 45 minutes, until lightly browned, and when tapped, sounds a little hollow.

Substitute, substitute, substitute. Recipes were made to be messed with. Use alternative ingredients to make your recipes healthier. Cook with broth (low-sodium vegetable, low-fat chicken or beef) instead of with oils. Use vinaigrettes or citrus-juice-based dressings instead of creamy ones, which are often full of saturated fat. Try olive oil, skim milk, or yogurt instead of butter or cream. Re-work dessert recipes that require heavy cream with evaporated skim milk or yogurt. For cakes and other desserts, substitute fresh-fruit puree as a topping instead of frosting. And one of my favorites: pancakes with applesauce, not maple syrup. These changes will give your favorite recipes great new flavor, and your food will be healthier!
