There is absolutely nothing more homey than the smell of fresh baked bread.
I have been making home made bread for years and years and years.
I have made it by hand.
I have made it in my KitchenAid
I have even made it in a bucket with a crank handle.
That was a nightmare, and I’ll never do it like that again!
But the best way I have found to knead dough is in a bread machine.
The texture is perfection.
And it was no different with today’s TWD pick of Raisin Swirl Bread that Susan of Food.Baby chose.
♥ I proofed it in my car because that is the best place for proofing dough in the summer.
♥ Because I didn’t have orange zest, I added an 1/8th tsp. orange emulsion
♥ Of course, I didn’t put raisins in my bread, because just like cookies and cakes, raisins do. not. belong. in bread.
This bread is fabulous.
It is taking all my one ounce of will power to not eat the entire loaf.
