At first, I had Monday-night-posting-withdrawal. As January moved along, I got used to not posting. Now, I have to retrain my mind and fine-tune my schedule so I can get back into the swing of baking with Dorie.
I love the first choice -- white bread. Baking bread is one of my favorite things to do, and this recipe didn't disappoint.
No particular problems to report. As with all my breads, I used my Silver Sage KA machine for maximum efficiency.
I made one loaf plain,
and filled the other with a cinnamon filling.
As much as I love cinnamon, I actually preferred the plain loaf. The wonderful flavor came through beautifully and wasn't masked by the spicy-sweet cinnamon. I think cinnamon sugar might have been a better choice.
Well, since I made the bread in January, it is long gone, so, no more photos.
The hostesses for our first endeavor are Laurie and Jules. If you want to bake this great bread, you can find the recipe on either of their blogs.
Then stop by the TWD/Baking with Julia site to see who is participating in this new baking adventure.
