One of my most favorite things to do is to bake. I call it therapy. Especially when it involves yeast. I don't know, something about the smell of the yeast, and feel of dough in my hands is therapeutic.
The other night, I had a hankering for cinnamon raisin bread. One of my all time favorite things is cinnamon raisin toast...loaded up with butter. Or cinnamon raisin french toast....mmm...
Anyhow, I figured, heck! I can make this! So, I pulled out my trusty dough recipe, through in some cinnamon and raisins, and, "Viola!"
The dough needed a bit more flour, which I didn't realize until it was too late, but oh well, it still rose fairly well, even though it was a bit flat.
And the smell.....heavenly!! A great way to wake up!
