Fall is not one of my favorite seasons but I have found that I am enjoying it more and more. There is definitely something wonderful about a crisp Fall day on the trail with sky brilliantly blue. Or the early frost on grasses. And I am finding that I do enjoy the flavors of Fall.
I seem to crave different foods; crisp apples, the pungent flavor of sage, sharp tastes of ripe nuts. I got the craving for cinnamon bread last week. I haven’t made a standard loaf of bread in a while. Mostly I’ve been making the no-kneed artisan bread. But I thought I’d like to try a nice cinnamon raisin bread.
I decided to try Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Bread from pete bakes!. I halved the recipe to make only one loaf. I had a little problem rolling and crimping the loaf. The recipe suggests to sprinkle the dough with water before sprinkling the cinnamon. It ended up leaking out but no problem. I crimped the ends and squeezed it into the pan to rise a second time.
It was so yummy. I loved it toasted but it was also great in a cheese sandwich on the trail. I used Swiss cheese with a little bit of cream cheese. You can also add a slice of ham if you want meat. Sooo good.
