YAY, my first official post for Tuesdays with Dorie…White Loaves….actually my first blogging post ever! 🙂 Please feel free TWD bakers, to offer any suggestions to enhance my blogging experience! Some of yours are so creative and colorful…I am not sure yet how to do that.
I had seen an article in the Oprah magazine a while back about TWD and thought it sounded like so much fun…unfortunately when I checked into it, at that time the group was filled. I had kept the info and for some reason last month I check back and they were taking new bakers!! To sign up I had to create a blog…did it, ordered the cookbook, and here I am. 🙂
I was so excited to get started baking and my family was eager to taste my results! For some reason I was feeling a little nervous, I guess because I would be accountable to tell of my experience in the blog…what if the bread didn’t turn out! I ended up having so much fun, the bread turned out delicous and I found myself thinking of the other TWD bakers and their white loaves they were baking. I made one loaf plain white and the other one cinnamon swirl. Not only did the house smell wonderful, the bread tasted amazing.
The dough was mixed and ready for the first rise…
Cinnamon Swirl Loaf
and onto the second rise…
This bread was SO delicious…we used the cinnamon swirl loaf for french toast the next morning…it was a huge hit!!!…THIS RECIPE WAS A KEEPER🙂
