This bread has a lovely lemony-herbal flavor and is yet another way to use up that giant head of lettuce.
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup quick oats
- 1/4 cup ground flaxmeal (or just put in another 1/4 cup of flour or oats)
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/8 tsp. ginger
- 1/8 tsp. mace or nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp. cardamom or allspice
- 1/8 tsp. cloves
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar (1/2 cup is plenty sweet for me)
- 1/4 cup applesauce
- 1/4 cup oil
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon zest
- 1 cup lettuce, finely chopped (I do it with a knife even though you're not supposed to cut lettuce with a knife, and it's always fine)
- 1/2 cup chopped nuts (I put them on top so they get toasty)
Grease a loaf pan. Mix all the dry stuff together (flour through sugar). In a separate bowl, mix the wet stuff and lemon zest (applesauce through lemon zest). Combine the two mixes and stir a little bit. Then, add lettuce and nuts. You can put the nuts on top of the batter after you dump it in the pan if you prefer. The batter will be stiff; smooth the top for even baking.
Bake at 350 degrees F. for 50-55 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a rack for ten minutes. Remove from pan and continue cooling on rack. Spread soft cream cheese on slices. Give it to people and surprise them with what's in it!
