"Hello..this is 911..What can I do for you?"
(frantic voice) "911? Oh yes! I really need your help. My situation is the pits...Please save me"
"We would do our best of course. Tell us what your problem is?"
"The lady of the house is choking me. I can hardly breath. I am suffocating to death"
"Tell us the address and our emergency team will arrive shortly"
"Thank you so much.! Too much of stuffing is never good....."
"Stuffing?...I did not get you..."
"I meant food! The lady stuffs me with Food! I know I am made specifically for that..but this is going too far"
"(confused) Made for that? One sec - before you explain, can I have your name for the records"
"Name? What name? - I don't have a name"
"(confused all the more) But..but what do ppl call you! Clearly you must have a name!!!!!"
"Dunno about the name, but the lady calls me as "her fridge""

Well, you said to go ahead and try honey with another person, so I did.
Yuck! Way to much baking soda! I used honey instead of cir vibegar, not sure who that would affect the flavour, it's too bad, cuz I like all the grains!
Given that you chose to substitute the vinegar with honey (!!), I see why you would not like the bread. Since you did not follow the science behind the ingredients, I am not surprised at your result. --DK
Yes - and if you notice I had mentioned I was not sure at all. I said you could try "crazy ideas" and who knows it might work. There were no gurantees and given that you chose to try it at your expense you cannot say the recipe sucked. As for the purpose of Vinegar - Its needed to react with Baking soda in the recipe that I know now. --DK
I originally made this bread per recipe and it came out very dry with VERY bitter aftertaste... I figured out it must have been the baking soda. So I tried again but this time I've added only 1/2 tsp of baking soda and instead of all 9 tbsps of oil- i added apple souse and 1 tbsp of oil. It turned out VERY moist and delicious! I cannot stop eating it. Thank you!
Usually instead of Veg oil - you can use any oil with neutral flavor and not a strong flavor of its own. I go for Expeller pressed Organic Canola in such cases. --DK
Unfortunately No :( I can do with that info too!
I have mentioned it in my first step. 350F --DK
There are two categories of breads - Quick Breads which mostly rely on Bp and Bs for rising and Yeast Breads which rely on Yeast for theirs. Personally I would say the Yeast adds to the texture giving the end baked good more fluffiness and that bready texture than in Quick breads. Yeast breads of course need more time and effort - thanks to all that kneading time and doubling time :) But then I wud prefer yeasty ones to ones without anyday :) --DK
Am working on it - will update soon :) --DK
Yes I am aware of them Madhu :) The one $$ store I know of is little far away and I am lazy to go all the way just for this...But will get those soon! Need to improve my skills :) --DK

Have sent you a mail Bhuvaneshwari :) --DK
Come to think of it, I really am not sure! I dunno what the exact purpose of vinegar is in this recipe - but u know what, I am going to suggest that you go ahead with it - I do crazy things like that and most of the times it comes out really well to my surprise! Who knows it might just work :) --DK
I dont have those fancy multicolored napkins - I tried all the colors of cloth I have at home (yeah! call me a cheapskate! I am lazy to buy fancy photo equipments and accessories!) - this was the best among the lot. Nothing else helped. I got tired after so many photos, I simply dont have the patience required to make a good photographer! :) --DK
What a coincidence. I just commented in your roundup post ;) Talk about telepathy! Thanks Priya :) --DK
