Cinnamon Raisin Bread

February 6, 2009

Is there anything quite as beautiful as a cinnamon swirl?

I think not. Especially when you have made said swirl yourself 🙂 I am really starting to love baking yeast breads, and this one is my favourite yet.  It’s a perfect breakfast bread and a delicious companion to a cup of coffee.

I am going to send you over to Eat Me Delicious to get the recipe- I followed her recipe exactly, though for next time I think I would brush the dough with egg before rolling in the filling, just because my swirl wasn’t as tight as I would have liked it to be. I will also brush a little butter over the top of the loaf when it comes out of the oven, to make the crust nice and soft. Flavour-wise though, this bread was incredible. I cannot wait to make french toast with it!! *swoons*

 In other news, I’m going to Boston this weekend and staying for a couple of weeks, which means I’ll be in town for Valentines Day 🙂 Anyone know of a good date kind of restaurant in the Boston area? The boy and I are looking for someplace to go for dinner, and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am also super excited about this trip because it means I will be near Whole Foods, TJ’s, Fage and all of my other US food loves that I can’t get here in Canada!!! Which means there will be a massive recap post, followed by sadness that I have to go another six months before I go to Whole Foods again.
