Yet another bread recipe. I have mentioned how much I love making bread right?? Well I do! This is my own recipe.
1 cup of warm water
1 tbs yeast
1/2 cup of honey (or sugar)
3-4 cups of flour (wheat, white or a little of both, today I used both)
1/4 cup of butter
1/2 tsp. of salt
1/2 tsp. of baking powder
1/2 tsp. of cinnamon
1/4 cupish of butter
1/2 cup of cinnamon and sugar
1/2 cup of dried currents ( you could also use raisins)
Place the first three ingredients into your mixer. Then add 3 cups of flour, and the rest of the ingredients. Add enough of the remaining flour that the dough starts to clean the sides of the bowl. Mix for 2 minutes. When it’s done let it rise until it’s doubled in size. Punch down and dump it out onto a floured surface. Knead the dough adding more flour (if needed) until it’s smooth and elastic. Roll out the dough into a rectangle, like you would if you were making cinnamon rolls. Spread with a thin layer of butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and then with the currents. Roll the dough up, (make it as tight of a roll as you can) like you would cinnamon rolls trying to keep the ends even. Chopped the dough rope in half to form two loafs. Place them in a greased loaf pan and let them rise until they are about 1 inch above the pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Enjoy the heavenly aroma as it bakes in your oven. Remove from pan and let cool on a cooling rack. ENJOY!
I had little helpers today that totally squished the loafs before I could bake them, but they still turned out pretty good, and they taste divine.
*sometimes when I need to make bread and I’m in a bit of a hurry I turn my oven on and set the bowl on the oven so my bread will rise a little faster.
