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.
I'm so glad I did my baking yesterday when it was a bit cloudy and cooler. Today it's back to hot. Also this was Airshow weekend here in Abbotsford so it was hot and very NOISY.

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

  1. Wow, your bread looks delicious! Seeing your lovely bread makes me want to get right in the kitchen and make some myself.
    Airshows! Living here In Trenton we sure have had our share of them. Very noisy and stinky! Hope you are back to your peace and quiet.
