Rose Platter: Make a Stovepipe Bread for the Planet!


There is a good use for making nut and fruit breads in coffee or fruit juice cans! They rise up with a tasty, plump shape! Try this recipe:

Grease the can, drop in the dough, let it rise until it peeks over the rim of a No. 2 can. Then bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes.


One third cup milk

One package yeast

3 tablespoons raisins

2 tablespoons water

2 cups flour

one third cup honey

half teaspoon vanilla

3 egg yolks

one fourth cup butter

3 tablespoons nuts

three tablespoons dates.


Warm the milk to 80 degrees and dissolve the yeast and honey in it. Set it aside for 15 minutes. Soak the raisins in the water during the same period. Mix together the yeast, egg yolks, vanilla, and flour. Knead until smooth. Add the raisin water to the dough and knead in the butter. Let rise once. Add the raisins, nuts, and dates before putting the dough into the can!
