Salara, a Guyanese Coconut Roll

I am in love with this Guyanese sweet delicacy! The Salara is a soft rolled bread with a fragrant cinnamon coconut filling that is tinted red.

#twelveloaves is a great group where we bake a bread with the addition of the monthly theme, flavor or ingredient. I am pretty sure you will have a general guess as to what February inspired as a theme: red of course, for the month of Saint Valentine. We were given lots of suggestions but I wanted something really original. I was thrilled to come across this exotic Guyanese Coconut Roll recipe called Salara.

Coconut Flour Zucchini Bread

The New Year is a great time to try new ingredients, like healthy and gluten-free coconut flour for this delicious Coconut Flour Zucchini Bread recipe.

#twelveloaves is a great group where we bake a bread with the addition of the monthly theme flavor or ingredient. Since we are in the New Year the theme this month was to make a bread with a New-to-You flour. I knew exactly which flour I was going to pick. I bought it a while back and I had yet to open the bag. My flour is coconut flour and I made a Coconut Flour Zucchini Bread.

Fruity Santa Bread

What a surprise this Fruity Santa Bread will be when it is brought to the table with the other sweets! Chock-full of fruits and nuts, the bread will be sure to please all the good and naughty kids around.

Lots of bread baking in the air and #twelveloaves is a great group where we bake a bread with the addition of the monthly theme flavor or ingredient. And keeping with the season, we were asked to prepare a Holiday bread. An online search brought on a list of the same old thing until this chosen one grabbed by attention big time. Could I actually make the Fruity Santa Bread to look like Santa?

Sage Egg Biscuit Surprise for #twelveloaves

The Sage Egg Biscuit Surprise is a great breakfast treat and a healthy meal on it’s own. Hidden inside the biscuit is a beautiful soft boiled egg with a still runny yolk.

#twelveloaves is a great group where we bake a bread with the addition of the monthly theme, flavor or ingredient. This month we were asked to explore Thanksgiving Biscuits and Rolls. In Canada, Thanksgiving has come and gone already but who does not love a good biscuit, I had to join in the fun. I fell in love with this Sage Egg Biscuit Surprise recipe and it may be a better Thanksgiving Brunch option for you.

Quick Raspberry Flatbread

Quick Raspberry Flatbread: a unique fruity twist to the classic thinner bread with a little raspberry puree mixed in. Make it all with fruit or half and half for fun twists.

#twelveloaves is a great group where we bake a bread with the addition of the monthly theme flavor or ingredient. Exploring a less full-on yeasty road this month, we were asked to prepare an original Cracker, Crisps or Flatbread. I was originally planning on going with down the cracker route but settled on an unusual fruit based bread with a Raspberry Flatbread.

Packed with 3 super healthy seeds, these fun Dulse Pull Apart Rolls with Chia, Flax and Sesame Seeds will win the heart of all bread lovers, especially those with a weakness for the sea!

Summer is going by too fast! It seems like it was just #twelveloaves a week ago but here we are already with my third participation. In this group we bake a bread every month with the addition of the monthly theme flavor or ingredient. This month we were asked to add seeds.

I was not even planning on participating this month because my schedule is just that insane! But I purchased a weird food ingredient (we love those at CEE) on my trip and I could fit it in my recipe, so here we are mixing up some dulse seaweed with chia, flax and sesame seeds.
