Does anyone have a very simple Ostara Bread Recipe?

Something with no soy milk ( i dont like it) and no stuff like maple syrup or agave. i just dont want to spend money on that stuff right now. I have obviously eggs, organic flour, water, salt. But no yeast. any recommendations?

  • I usually do a Bisquick recipe. I use the biscuit recipe, but double, and about 1/4 less water, to make it thicker. When dough is ready, I divide it into threes, then braid it, while chanting "Maiden, Mother, Crone, bless our mess." Silly, I know, but it's fun and makes us smile. Each "strand" represents a goddess aspect. Sometimes we put raisins and cinnamon in it, or brush the top with butter and brown sugar. Other times we just dip it in honey.

  • I have used frozen bread dough before and it was good. I think I am going to use NightPhoenix's idea this time.

  • I leave out the treasures...I'll be the one choking!

    Prep Time: 20 minutes
    Cook Time: 45 minutes
    1 package Lemon Poppy Seed Bread mix
    Ingredients to prepare mix as directed
    1/2 C golden raisins
    1 Tbsp orange zest
    1/2 C dried cranberries
    Non-meltable goodies to add into the bread, such as:
    A shiny coin
    A piece of gold or silver jewelry
    A ring
    A polished crystal
    Vanilla ice cream
    Prepare the bread mix as directed. Once it's all mixed together, add in the golden raisins, the orange zest, and the cranberries. Finally, fold in a few small treasures, such as a ring, a cleaned coin, or a polished crystal. Be sure you select items that won't melt when you bake it in the oven!

    Bake as directed on the package, and then remove from oven. Allow to cool. To serve, slice off pieces, keeping an eye out for the hidden treasures. Top each slice off with a scoop

  • What about lemon poppyseed muffins - yellow for the sun, seeds for new life, and no yeast needed.
