My Healthy(er) and Fast(er) Amish Bread... nearly instant gratification compared to that old ten day process. You can be eating this bread in a little more than an hour after the craving hits you!
Grey Saturday mornings are a great time to try a new recipe. I love Amish bread, but am just not patient enough to wait TEN days to "moosh the bag." After seeing that others have attempted to shorten the process, too, I played with the recipe, and now what we have is a true QUICK bread, that has more protein, more fiber, and that spicy-sweet flavor we're looking for!
When my daughter heard about this quicker Amish bread, she teased me by saying, "YOU altered a recipe? I'm SHOCKED." You see, it's what I DO...
Here we go...
1/2 c. canola oil
1/2 c. Greek nonfat yogurt
2 c. lowfat milk w/ 2 T. vinegar (or 2 c. buttermilk)
Mix these wet ingredients together, then stir in:
1 c. sugar (* see note)
1 c. Stevia
Finally, add dry ingredients:
2 c. whole wheat flour
2 c. white flour
2 t. baking soda
1 T. cinnamon
1 large package of vanilla pudding (OPTIONAL. *If adding pudding, eliminate sugar, but not Stevia)
Cinnamon sugar mixture:
1/2 c. raw sugar or regular...raw ups the texture factor!
2 t. cinnamon
Spray non-stick spray on pans. Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar on bottom and sides of pan. Put half of batter in pans, sprinkle w/ cinnamon sugar, then add the other half of batter. Stir a knife through the pans to swirl the cinnamon throughout. Sprinkle the top with cinnamon sugar.
(Note: I made 12 muffins and 3 small loaves with mine.)
Bake at 350...check muffins in about 20 minutes...loaves in about 30 minutes. A toothpick should come out cleanly when the bread is ready.
