I have decided to be a bit more proactive about my aging and help you all out as well. Each week in my blog I will post a tiny morsel of information that will help you in your journey as you age. Be sure to scroll to the bottom for today's tip.
Susan of Food-Baby chose Raisen Swirl Bread for this week's TWD challenge. You can use the link and jump over to her fabulous blog and get the recipe for this fabulous bread! I've got to admit. Yeast scares me. Not scary the way monsters are, nor does it keep me awake at night, but it just seems like there is so much room for failure on yeast related recipes. But I gave it a good try and got great results. The dough rose nicely while Chandler and I watched The Inglorious Basterds with Brad Pitt. The house was filled with that wonderful smell of yeast. After freezing the dough for thirty minutes, it was quite easy to roll out. I'm not sure I rolled it exactly to the specifications, but close enough. One thing I love about Dorie's recipes is the detail of her instructions makes the recipe easy to follow.
It did not rise as much as I would have liked. We really enjoyed it for breakfast!
