Raisin bread

Another recipe from The River Cottage Family Cookbook. L's first attempt at breadmaking, and except for some advice on kneading time, I stayed out of the proceedings.

L's loaf:


The offspring got good oven spring, no?

Homemade raisin bread, how can you not eat a whole loaf?

It looks great!

I ate an incredible amount of raisin bread as a kid--it was my fave. I haven't had homemade in decades.

Will L. be making hot cross buns next spring?

I like how the book has a paragraph on "how to eat your Raisin Bread'

Wow, it's beautiful! Baking scares me. I'm a good cook, but once flour is involved, things tend to get ugly.

I love The Zuni cookbook, too. Best piecrust recipe evah!

LOL...I need to come over to learn how to knead right too...making gluten free bread is a pain! But it tastes better then the store bought stuff anyday!
