Hobo bread- Recipe #4





An attempt at visualizing the Fourth Dimension: Take a point, stretch it into a line, curl it into a circle, twist it into a sphere, and punch through the sphere- Albert Einstein

Luckily for me I did not have to do so much to attempt the fourth recipe- again a very simple recipe. I have reinforced the fact, for myself and hopefully for others too, that keeping things simple brings out the best of everything and it is definitely true with bread. I modified the recipe from here, I made only one loaf.

Ingredients



2/3 cups  raisins
2/3 cups  boiling water
1 1/2 tsp.  baking soda

Mix raisins and baking soda and pour boiling water over it. Let it stand overnight.

Method

2/3 cups sugar
a pinch of salt
3 tbsp vegetable oil
1 1/2cups Barley Flour


2 tsp instant coffee powder


Combine ingredients, including the plumped up raisin mixture and mix well.
Spoon the dough out into greased loaf pan
Bake at 350 F for 45 minutes



Judgement


Awesome.... although next time I will add a strong coffee brew, lower the amount of sugar and may be throw in some nuts. But the bread was super-moist and sort of melted in our mouths!
