Last year I found these bottles with instructions to make my own vanilla. Oh, once you make your own vanilla you won't want to go back to store bought vanilla. My baked goods taste so much better. I couldn't believe it.
All you need is a glass bottle or a mason jar, 3 vanilla beans (at your local health food store) and vodka. That's it. You will save yourself so much money and really love the taste in your baked goods.

Oh my goodness! This is so easy, but oh soooo delicious.
3/4 cup any type of milk (I used coconut milk)
1 cup cane sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup flour (I used spelt flour)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
5 peaches skinned and thinly sliced (you can use canned peaches, just drain)
Place the cut up fruit in a baking pan. Mix all your ingredients in a bowl, and pour over the cut up fruit. Bake in the oven at 350 for 1 hour. DONE
You can serve it with ice cream if you like ;)

4 to 41/2 cups spelt flour ( I used organic)
1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
2 1/2 teaspoons yeast
3/4 cup water
5/8 cup milk any kind ( I used water )
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons honey
Sift your 4 to 4 1/2 cups of flour with the sea salt. I used a bread machine, but you can do this by hand if you like.
Place all your wet ingredients (water, milk, oil, honey) in your bread machine bread pan. Add the flour with the salt on top. With your finger make a little dent in the flour and add the yeast. Let your machine knead this dough for exactly 8 minutes. Turn off the machine and let your dough sit in your bread pan, in your machine for 45 minutes.
Take your dough out of the bread pan unto a lightly floured surface, knead and shape your dough for only 30 seconds and place into a greased bread pan. Cover with a thin cloth napkin and let rise for 50 minutes. I let my breads rise in the oven so that I just have to remove the napkins and turn on the oven. The less you have to move your bread pans the better your dough will rise. Bake at 350 for 45 to 50 minutes.
Don't over knead your dough it will become sticky and gooey. When this happens just add a little more flour to your dough knead it a couple more times and then let it rise.
