I'm not gonna lie to you, although I made the decision to bake this bread for Tuesdays With Dorie, I was NOT looking forward to it. I love cinnamon & raisins, so being picky had nothing to do with it. It was the fact that until today I'd never succeeded in making one single recipe that called for yeast. But did you catch that? Until today! This amazing bread is the one and only yeasty beast I've been able to conquer thus far in my culinary journey. So a big thanks to Dorie Greenspan, and her groupies of which I am proud to be a part.
Due to this little bout of luck, Dick and I will be having a fantastic French Toast breakfast very soon. Let's face it, it may actually end up being a French Toast dinner, but either way, your mouth is watering just thinking about it. Am I right, or am I right? If you'd like to join us, please visit my TWD buddy, Susan, at Food.Baby for the complete recipe.
