Brainstorming: interesting breakfast loaves.
I need new bread for toast. Horribly so.
When I was last here I had just had my second child. So...not much baking went on. He's over a year and a half old now, and I was getting sick of store bought bread. So...back to it. My kids are getting sick of it, too, though, and last night was the first time they touched bread in a long time: I made asiago cheese loaves and...er...they're almost gone now. Two more are in the dough stage as we speak.
So I need some kid-friendly ideas that I could experiment with for breakfast breads. I'd like something I can build on a basic slightly sweet, slightly enriched dough. The sweetening could vary with the type of fruit/seasonings that went in the bread. I was already thinking of doing a maple-oatmeal bread, sweetened solely with maple syrup. I had also tossed around the idea of a strawberry-banana bread (which would be very, very pink inside) and a pumpkin-oatmeal bread (with pie spices), and a blueberry-cream cheese spiral. I've also been tossing around the idea of doing a sweetened five spice bread, but that's a quick bread and not what we're talking about here.
So anyone have anything else I haven't thought of to throw out at me?
