Thanks to the Crazy Ingredient Challenge crew, I have found an amazing new flavor combination.
So many great ideas to make with these two ingredients. Be sure to scroll to the bottom to see what the other bloggers came up with this month.
I made this INCREDIBLE no-knead Pineapple Rosemary Bread.
I spied some dried pineapple at Winco when I was looking for dried mangos and I knew I wanted to use them for the recipe this month instead of fresh pineapple or even canned. And for the rosemary I had to go all the way out to my back yard and snip a few branches off of one of the two huge bushes I have.
The idea for this bread is based off of Betty Crocker’s Dried Fruit and Cinnamon Batter Bread (which also sounds good and I may try to make another time).
A batter bread is a yeast bread, that is mixed in a mixer (or by hand if you want an upper body workout) instead of kneading, and only needs one rising, instead of two like most yeast breads. The dough/batter is far to soft to knead by hand.
When I was fishing in the cabinet for the bread pans I had to move the tortilla bowl pans that I bought and have never used. Since the bread is brioche-like with butter and egg, why not make it brioche shaped? Yeah, the uni-taskers now have two functions.
The only other word of advice I have is to be sure to cut the pineapple into small pieces. Mine ended up in bigger chunks. Not a failure, but would have been better smaller. I picked off that big chunk in the picture above because I didn’t want it burning.
