(Mini) Greedy Bird Baking Enterprise: Honey, Rhubarb and Strawberry Bread
Matilda wanted to make strawberry cake. There are lovely sweet local strawbs on the market so I thought this was a good idea. And it seemed a bit healthier than some recent GBBE efforts. When I started looking for recipes I came across one here that claimed to be "wholesome" (i.e. replaces sugar with honey) and combined fresh rhubarb, which we also have on the market at the moment. Fresh. Wholesome. Bread*. Yes, yes, yes, get thee behind us Easter chocolate orgy.
I used the opportunity to give Matilda her first go at chopping. Unsurprizingly she took to "couping" with alacrity.
The bread is utterly delish and no doubt would be extremely healthy if I were capable of eating it with any kind of moderation.
I might even have followed the Wholesome Cook's advice, ok, ok, I did follow her advice to drizzle some maple syrup over the whole affair. Drizzle, downpour, who's to say... Super wholesome.
* Because I actually used the Food Nouveau dairy-ahoy version of the recipe. We need butter in our Vendéen housebarelyholdingtogether. And this recipe calls itself bread, which just sounds even more wholesome. But the Food Nouveau link will no longer load, sorry.
