I Love it When the Gnomes Bring Me Breakfast

Ok, we don’t really have gnomes who bring me breakfast. However one of my very favorite things is when breakfast is already prepared and waiting for me. I wouldn’t complain if someone else got up early and made it either, of course. But I love making it myself and having it already ready already. So it was with great joy I began the recipe for Cinnamon Raisin Walnut Bread. Notice that the walnuts have magically disappeared from the recipe, too. How great! I’m not a huge fan of those nuts, finding them bitter most of the time.

Thanks to Nicole of Pinch My Salt, I’m heavily embroiled in this challenge of making each bread from Peter Reinhart’s book, The Bread Baker’s Apprentice. Each recipe is good enough that I’m mightily restraining myself from buying his newest book, Peter Reinhart’s Artisan Breads Every Day, quite yet.

The dough itself mixed up beautifully.

To make this bread I actually had to go out and buy some raisins, because while we do keep several types of dried fruits in the house, raisins are not one of them.

It rose alongside a loaf of multigrain sandwich bread.

After its second rise, the loaf of Cinnamon Raisin Bread was done.

Just like that, there was breakfast brought by the gnomes. Well, by me, but it was ready and waiting when I woke the next morning. And isn’t that magic?
