GF Pumpernickel Bread

My husband loves Caraway Seeds and Molasses so he gave a Thumbs Up for this GF Pumpernickel Bread.  Crusty on the outside, soft on the inside and not crumbly like most gluten-free breads.  I don’t have to use a knife or turn my toaster upside down to remove my slice intact.

Note:  The original Nature’s Fairy Recipe uses 3 Tsp of Yeast.  But if you live in higher altitudes, try 2 Tsp and don’t  “Set It and Forget It!”. Definitely don’t leave the house until you’ve safely made it past the proofing cycle, especially if you’re using a Bread Machine.  This picture shows bread made in a 9×5″ loaf pan minus a bit of batter that I lost on the bottom of the oven during proofing !

Golden Butternut Squash and Wild Blueberry Pancakes

Gem Squash

Gem Squash

I used to hate anything green when I was a kid.  Now, I’m all over vegetables.  I’ve only introduced myself to a variety of  squashes recently. I love Kobucha the best.  I roast wedges with garlic oil, pepper medley, rosemary and a drizzle of maple syrup.  So good I even eat the rind !

The last time I was at the Kamloops Farmers Market I picked up two small Kobucha and Gem Squashes. Both were green and speckled but the Gem Squash had a lighter, wetter flesh similar to zucchini.  I wanted to put my cooked Gem Squash leftovers to good use.  I found Gluten Free Gigi’s Golden Butternut Squash and Wild Blueberry Pancakes  recipe.  I  increased the squash to 1 Cup.   I misread the recipe and included the Coconut Oil in the batter plus threw in the extra yolk on hand .  I usually have light Blueberry Cottage Cheese Pancakes daily, so I used frozen Raspberries instead of Blueberries to change things up.  This forgiving recipe worked out well…my teenager even ate 2 without complaint !
