Chocolate Babka

Posted in /Cooking/Breads on Saturday, February 10, 2018

I've been doing a lot of curriculum planning for my three different grade levels of foods classes. The grade 11s and 12s are currently working on a yeast module and I wanted something more than buns and sandwich bread for them. I came across this recipe on Smitten Kitchen (one of my favorite food bloggers) and I knew I needed to try it before I let my students tackle it. The recipe is a two dayer outside of the classroom, but will be a three dayer for my students, so that will work out well for my their class. The loaf didn't rise as much as I was hoping but that is due to the fact that I used traditional yeast (which I always have in my fridge) and not quick rise yeast. Nevertheless, the loaf is beautiful and my house smells AMAZING!

Lemon Poppy Seed Bread

Muffins are such an easy snack you see them everywhere from your local coffee shop to hospital vending machines. Some muffins are so sweet they're really just a cupcake without the frosting and a bit of fruit hidden inside.

Being a teacher I go to quite a few meetings where snacks are provided, and whenever lemon poppy seed muffins are an option they're the first to go. There are a million different versions of lemon poppy seed recipes, my adaptation is subtly lemon and refreshingly sweet without being a cupcake.

Makes 12-16 muffins

Canada is a lush place to grow crops during the summer months. During the winter months we need to rely on our pantry and freezer to bring out the wonderful flavours of the prairies. This recipe is almost entirely Canadian, see if you can find the few ingredients that are not native to Canada.
