Kwik-Bread

I was feeling aggressive when I got home last night and cleaned the house, made some food, and decided to make some bread to go with the tunafish I was going to eat today. That's right, I quickly whipped up some bread.... check it out:


Looks pretty good right? It actually tastes good too! I had forgotten I ordered some items from Kinnikinnick a little while back. I absolutely love their Pancake & Waffle Mix. I also like everything they make. Their cinnamon & sugar donuts are TO DIE FOR. I only order them once in a while though because they're so sinful .... If you haven't tried products from this company, you really should.

Anyway, I saw this item on their site and wanted to try it out:

All you do is mix 3 cups of the mix and 2 cups of cold milk (or water) and bake. EASY!

I added the sesame seeds to the top, I'm sure you could add whatever you want to it. The taste is really good, makes great sandwiches, and you don't have to toast it! It's a bit spongy, not too bad, but I know some people don't like that about bread - I like it. I much prefer that to the dry crumbly consistency.

Here's a phone shot of my tuna sandwich at my desk (the lighting in here is really dim which is why all my blackberry pics look blurry & bad):

That looks yummy! Do you make your bread in a bread maker or just bake it?

So I went to Flatbread the other night and it was AMAZING! They have a whole page in the menu talking about the gluten free dough and they are very good about putting it on a separate area when making the pizza and cooking it. You can get anything you want on it and it was so good!! They even have Redbridge and gf desserts! I was really impressed. Definitely worth the drive. I want to go back so if you plan on going let me know and I will definitely come with you!

Hey Julia!
I just baked the bread... I have a breadmaker and haven't had the best luck with it - the oven seems easier sometimes.

Flatbread sounds AWESOME!! I definitely want to go asap. How long did it take you to get there? i should do a review on my site... I also want to do a Burtons review soon....

Jenny said...

We are TOTALLY going to Flatbread. ASAP. Pick a date. I'm not available until after July 9th but the 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th?? I'll see if my GF friend Liz wants to go too.

Julia said...

I'm glad to hear you don't use a bread maker. I have never made bread but maybe I should try that one, it seems pretty easy!

Hard to say how long because we went from Somerville to Brian's sister's house in Woburn and then to Bedford. I think it would be about 30-40min from Boston though.
I will go whenever you girls want to!

So good to know! I love their waffle and pancake mix too. Oooh. And their doughnuts -- so tasty.

Love your blog, Allie!

Allie said...

Hey good "eatah" (love the name!) ...

so glad to have you here! :) another kinnik-lover!

Marlow said...

Yep, I'm gonna have to check this out!

So I almost bought this today, but didn't. Do you need one of those heavy duty mixers in order to mix the dough? I have one of those handheld mixers that tends to have a little trouble on something simple like brownie mix, I don't want to kill it by trying to make bread! I'm dying to try this though!

Allie said...

Hey Steph -- NO - that's the beauty! I don't have a mixer either! I just whisked it quickly and that seemed to do the trick.

It's literally the easiest bread to make ever. I actually need to order more!!!
