View Full Version : question about dehydrator bread
07-25-2008, 10:44 PM
Hi! I am new to raw foods and new to this message board.
Today I tried making a raw banana bread in my Nesco dehydrator. It has been in there at 105 for about 14 hours. It tastes good (a little salty), but it still has the consistancy of a thick fruit leather. What is raw dehydrated "bread" supposed to be like? :confused:
Here's a link to the recipe: http://www.recipezaar.com/51932

Hi! i am also new to raw but i have been "cooking" up a storm experimenting and getting ready for the aug 30 day..... i have made onion bread and spicy monkey bread(banana) both took about 14 hours and really resembled normal bread did you flip it at all? also i am no expert trust me! but i was wondering maybe its because there isnt any grain in it its not binding tigether and drying? my banana bread was made with sprouted wheat berriesand the onion with flax... just a thought! keep experimenting though im sure even if its not the right texture it will taste great!

Thanks for the suggestions! I ended up leaving this "bread" in the dehydrator 22.5 hours and it's still a thick fruit leather. Tastes good though.:)

Where did you find the recipe for spicy monkey bread? I did a search here but didn't see it.

There's a recipe called "Spicy Monkey Bread" in Alissa's book.

Hey there! I also tried Alissa's Spicy Monkey Bread this weekend using a Nesco round dehydrator and had the same 'problem'.
I spread the batter fairly thin and tried to turn it after 8-12 hours but it was sticking to the parchament paper. So, it got flipped leaving the paper on the side that was up and dehydrated overnight. The next morning the paper would peel off and just the outer edge, maybe 1/2 inch in, was dry. The rest is sticky moist but doesn't stick to the paper.
Needless to say, I was dissappointed in the texture and look. DH said it didn't taste bad so that means it is edible. My brain can't quite get past that it should be banana bread but looks like a tortilla or fruit wrap.
Just wanted to let you know that you are not along. Keep experimenting and good luck with your adventures.
