Hola my fine-looking friends in magical internet world, how you doin’ ??
Did you have a good weekend?
Are you as sad as I am that Friday night takes sooo long to get here, and Monday morning arrives lickity split?!?
Do you do anything special to add a little glitter to your Mondays?
An extra large coffee?
An extra snazzy outfit?
Special work arrangements?
Sweet notes in lunch boxes?
Are you a little weirded out that I’m questioning the bejeebers out of you???
I made you bread.
With lots of butter on it, and it’s equally crunchy while being soft and pillow like.
And it’s easy.
And like Mama LTSL says, bread fixes everything.
Also,I ate it on a unicorn plate!!
Cinnamon Raisin English Muffin Loaf
5 1/2 cups Flour
2 Tbsp Quick Rising Yeast
1 Tbsp Honey
1/4 Cup Warm Water
2 Tsp Sea Salt
1/4 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tbsp Cinnamon Powder
2 1/4 Cups Warm Whole Milk
1 Tbsp Coarse Cornmeal ( for dusting your loaf pan)
Preheat oven to 350 oc. Prepare 2 standard bread loaf pans ( each 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches) by either buttering or spraying with nonstick spray. Dust each pan with coarse cornmeal. Set aside until ready to bake.
In a large bowl, combine yeast, honey and warm water. Stir and set aside to sit for 10 minuets ( you want the mixture to get all nice and bubbly).
In an other large bowl, sift together Flour, Sea Salt, Baking Powder, Cinnamon.
To your yeast mixture, add milk and 1 cup of the mixed dry ingredients. Mix until well combined ( it’s going to be sticky … not to worry).
Once combined, add the rest of the dry ingredients. Last add raisins.
Separate bread down in two even halves – filling each prepared pan.
Bake 45 minutes, until golden brown
Allow to cool and then slice and eat on your coolest mary-go-round unicorn plate … or any other plate that fancifies your monday.
Seriously, slather some butta on a slice and chomp away!!
