Stir water, yeast, sugar and oil together. Leave for 5 minutes until it becomes frothy on top. Add flour, salt and baking powder. Mix well. Knead. Roll out if making a pizza base or shape for use as buns / bread / loaf. Paint with oil or milk (if you can be bothered). Bake at 200 degrees Celcius for 10-15 minutes.
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for pie plate
1 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled), plus more for pie plate
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
3 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1 bag (12 ounces) frozen cherries, thawed and dried
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate (4-cup capacity); set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in almond extract. With mixer on low, blend in flour mixture (do not overmix).
Transfer batter to prepared pie plate; scatter cherries and almonds on top. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
Preheat the oven to 350°F; lightly grease an 8 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ loaf pan.
In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs, honey, oil, sugar, and vanilla until smooth.
Add the salt, baking soda, baking powder, espresso powder, cocoa, and flour, mixing until well combined.
Stir in the zucchini and chocolate chips.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake the bread for 65 to 75 minutes, until the loaf tests done (a toothpick or cake tester inserted into the center will come out clean, save for perhaps a light smear of chocolate from the melted chips).
Remove the bread from the oven, and let it cool for 10 to 15 minutes before turning it out of the pan onto a rack.
Cool completely before slicing; store well-wrapped, at room temperature.
