So today I thought I’d experiment with some sort of sugary treat. I’m having my monthly visit from my awful Aunt Flo, and she literally demands sugar, and a lot of it.

So I do my best to comply. I started out with basic French Bread recipe except mixing

  • 1/2c Organic Oat Flour and
  • 1c Unbleached AP Flour with
  • 3/4c warm water & yeast (w/one sugar cube)

I kneaded lightly for about one minute on a floured surface, dusted the ball, placed it back in the bowl, covered with saran and put in the oven (warm, but not on).

After one rise, I rolled out the dough onto a floured surface to about 1/2″ thick and spread a light coat of browned butter and

  • 1/2c brown sugar
  • 1/4c chopped almonds
  • some dried cranberries
  • (considerable amount of) ground cinnamon
  • (tiny bit of) clove
  • (and a little) white sugar

then rolled up the whole thing like a jelly roll, pinched the ends and baked in the oven at 400 until golden on top.


This isn’t a true Hungarian Nut Loaf, though… it’s just sort of like one.
