For the last weeks I have been making breads a lot. Especially sweet breads.
Every year this time my hubby goes in a sort of a diet, he stop eating most of the luxry food or just say foods he love to eat, and no wine etc.
So he won't eat chocolate, biscuits, fried food, no nuts which he is crazy for and have almost every evening a small bowl.
He does this saying the whole winter one has been having fatty food so it is nice to clean the body.
Well daughter and I join in, grumblingly.
So to have my additiction for sweets I bake sweet breads to compensate :-)
I followed the same recipe but instead of just adding raisins , i did
1 1/2 cup of raisins and 1 cup chopped pecannuts.
And also did the cinamon swrill.
To make the cinamon sugar, stir 1/2 cup sugat and 2 tbsp cinamon. When shaping the dough,roll out the dough into a rectangl and then sprinkle the sugar mix and then roll up the dough into a light sandwithc style loaf, pinching the seam closed with your fingers.
When you slice the bread, it will look pretty and also add extra cinamon flavour.
