In my Kitchen
This bread was actually made yesterday but I didn't get around to posting because we were rather busy with all that fruit we got. DH was hungry for raisin bread so I made a batch of sweet dough in the breadmaker and when it was done I divided the great lump into two, rolled each one out, lightly spread some butter, then brown sugar and cinnamon ( plus a few raisins, it was supposed to be raisin bread after all). I then rolled it up best as I could and let it rise. Well, it sure did rise. I should have made three loaves instead of two. The sugary mess dripped down onto the bottom of the oven. But that is the best sweet bread I have ever made. It makes the best toast ( although it doesn't fit in the toaster and has to be made in the toaster oven.)
I had a hard time rolling out the dough thin enough without it 'springing back' so I didn't get many swirls as you can see. I'm just happy when my baking turns out. While I was waiting for the bread to rise I quickly made a recipe of scones. Ever since I started to use my food processor for cutting in the butter for this recipe it's much easier. Due to arthritis I find some jobs more difficult than I used to.
Tomorrow morning all those planes will fly over on their way home, making one last roar and we will again have relative quiet.
I hope you had a good weekend. Granny Marigold
