Mixed Fruit Crisp

A new twist on crisp! As you can see my family got to it before I could get a good picture! This is really good with the different fruits and the raisins add a good flavor and texture. TIPS: I alternated each fruit one-by-one (peel, core, slice an apple, put in pan; peel, pit, slice a peach, put in pan; peel, core, slice a pear, put in pan, etc) so that I didn't have to mix the fruit and risk it breaking and/or getting mushy. Then I just sprinkled the raisins over the fruit. It worked out nicely and tastes great!!

3 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
4 fresh peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced
3 fresh pears, peeled, cored and sliced
½ cup raisins
¼ cup water
½ cup rolled oats
¼ cup brown sugar
½ cup flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 pinch salt
¼ cup butter

Preheat oven to 375°. Combine apples, peaches, pears, raisins and water in a 9”x13” baking pan.

In small bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Cut in butter using a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over fruit.

Bake for 35-45 minutes or until topping starts to brown. Serve warm.


European Style White Bread

So here is another non-dessert recipe, but it's so good!! I got this from a cooking group I attend. It's super simple and will be gone in minutes! TIPS: I use my hands to oil the dough instead of a brush. The dough will only lightly brown because of the oil coating, so tap the loaf and listen for a "hollow" sound.

1 1/2 cups warm water
1 tbsp active dry yeast
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp salt
3 1/2 - 4 cups flour
Olive oil
Mrs Dash seasoning

Combine water, yeast and sugar in a bowl. Let stand (proof) for 10 minutes. Add salt. Mix flour one cup at a time until dough is soft and silky. Form dough into a long loaf on a cookie sheet. Brush olive oil all over (on the bottom as well) dough and sprinkle generously with Mrs. Dash. Let rise 30-45 minutes or until doubled. Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes. Cool on pan for about 5 minutes then remove to cooling rack.


Chocolate Chocolate Chip Bread

I know it's been a while since I posted, but I just had a baby and baking hasn't been on my list of top priorities. Sorry. Anyway, I'm getting back into a good routine so there should be more deliciousness to come more often!

This bread is really good! It's not too chocolatey; just enough to make it tastier!!

2 cups flour
½ cup sugar
½ tsp baking powder
1 ½ tsp baking soda
2 tbsp baking cocoa
½ tsp salt
1 egg
1 1/3 cups milk
1/3 cup oil (or applesauce)
¾ cup chocolate chips
¾ cup walnuts, chopped

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease three 5¾"x3" loaf pans. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa and salt in medium bowl. Mix egg, milk and oil in small bowl. Add to flour mixture; mix just until moistened. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Put one cup batter in each pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans for 5 minutes; remove from pans. Cool on wire rack. Enjoy the goodness!
