Cinamon Raisin Pecan Nuts Bread

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 have made this bread before but then without then cincamon sugar and without the nits.
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.

Mallugirl said...

i just made this bread usin another recipe..that called for an egg wash before sprinkling the sugar.. i thot it wad to adhere the sugar... u think that is imp?

Happy Cook said...

Mallugirl you did the affwash after baking? And then sprinkled sugar? Or before the baking.
I just brushed tthe bread straigt from the oven with melted butter and then sprinkled sugar on top.
