Lemonade Bread

7:51 PM

Since I've been trying to make bread at home, I've been having fun looking for crazy recipes that will make the kids' lunch not so boring for school.  When I saw this lemonade bread recipe, it definitely ignited my curiosity and I decided to give it a shot.

First off, the original recipe is seriously lacking some liquids, so I modified the recipe below to about how much extra water I estimate I added.  A quarter cup of liquids is going to be laughed at by nearly four cups of flour, so I had to play around with that.  The bread itself was ok - I think me having to rework the bread over and over again due to the liquids left me with a tough loaf, and the flavor was so-so.  I think that if this recipe was played around with a bit it could be a lot better, but its a good start.  The kids sure are loving their sandwiches with the lemonade flavored bread, so maybe its just me being too critical.  If you are creative in the kitchen (which I am so not), I bet you could tweak this recipe to make it spectacular.  One day I'll be brave enough to be more creative :)
