The Bread Baker’s Apprentice Challenge: No 9. Cinnamon Raisin Walnut Bread
Each week (or so) I will be making a bread recipe from Peter Reinhart’s wonderful book, The Bread Baker's Apprentice: Mastering the Art of Extraordinary Bread. The nineth recipe in the Bread Baker's Apprentice Challenge is Cinnamon Raisin Walnut Bread.
Growing up it was always a real treat when my mom brought cinnamon raisn bread home. I loved it toasted and smeared with butter. There were times, when I'd go through half a loaf in one day. When my mom asked about it, I blamed it on my brothers. :)
This was my first time making this bread on my own. I made one loaf with the walnuts and one without. I liked the flavour of the walnuts in this bread but I didn't like the texture. I prefer the soft bread that I remembered from my childhood.
This is a wonderful recipe and I know I'll be making this bread over and over again.
Show some love to the other challenge participants of this challenge.
Up next: Corn Bread!
