Yield: 2-4 servings
Time to make: 20-30 minutes.

The simple flour and water dough is kneaded and then fried like bannock before being crumbled and drenched in butter and honey for a simple, but satisfying dessert.  One might call it Ethiopian popcorn.

Creamed Asparagus or Spinach (with Popovers)

Source: Simply in Season
Date tried: January 4, 2017
Yield: Serves 2 as a main dish or 3-4 as a side dish
Time needed: 30-40 minutes for popover version. 20 minutes for omelet version

This is actually three recipes in one. First you make the creamed vegetable (asparagus or spinach) which you can serve as a side dish on its own, or on toast. Or you can try the omelet or popover versions below.

The quantities given for the cream sauce make a thin sauce. My preference is for a medium sauce. That would call for either 1/2 the milk or double the butter and flour.

Date and Nut Bread

Source: Ecological Cooking
Date tried: April 25, 2012
Yield: 3 loaves
Time needed: 3 hours, but most of the time is for rising and baking, not prepping.

Most dessert breads are quick breads, but this is a yeast bread yet it does not call for any kneading. I think this is an oversight, even though the instructions say the batter will be sticky when put into the loaf pans. In any case, I did skip kneading and I was not pleased with the results. It tasted fine, but it really did not look good at all.
