On the heels of my last bread recipe, I was itching to try something different, (seeing as I conquered my apprehension of working with yeast and dough), I decided to make Cinnamon Raisin bread, which is my mom’s favorite bread.
This took much longer than the first bread recipe, not exactly sure why, but I felt like I spent the whole day baking! Simple, simple recipe and if you’re up for it, you’ll love it! For directions & more, keep reading!
The last time I made bread pudding on the blog, I said I’d remake it using more ingredients and I finally did! This time, I added more cinnamon and obviously, raisins. I followed the same recipe as the first time, so no surprises there.
Plus, the last bread pudding recipe wasn’t as comprehensive as this one (not enough pictures etc) so this go-round, you get to see the entire thing (well, most of it anyway!). For directions & more, keep reading!
In the spirit of trying to challenge myself when it comes to baking with dough, I decided to make bread! The thought to do so always came to mind, but being that I’m more of a meat and potatoes type lady, I never really did much by way of baking with flour.
When my blog turned a year old, I knew I’d have to up the ante and start challenging myself and what better way to do that than by doing the one thing I dreaded most! For directions & more, keep reading!
French toast is one of those substitutes for your regular ol’ run of the mill bread and egg breakfast. Sometimes though, I do prefer just the bread and egg, but when I get tired of it, french toast is always the way to go!
Up until sometime early last year, I always made french toast with just the eggs and then one day, I decided to try it with milk. Lo and behold, fluffiness! The difference was like night and day; without the milk, it’s a tad too dense, but when you add milk, it’s just light goodness. For directions & more, keep reading!
So, this is totally a first attempt. Never made banana bread before, not even just bread, but it turned out pretty tasty, just a little ‘denser’ than I’d’ve preferred. Next time I make this, I’ll adjust the recipe a bit.
I love bananas and I had 3 really ripe ones laying around, looking all forlorn, so I thought to myself, well, I could make banana pudding. I looked up the recipe for that and found it called for vanilla wafers, which I didn’t have, so the next option was banana bread and lo and behold, my first attempt was born. Didn’t take long either, very easy and straightforward. For directions & more, keep reading!
