bread 006

Hey there!

So I hoped I wouldn’t have one of these posts to write, but here I give you my first real fail of the Bread Baker’s Apprentice Challenge…it just did not work. Which was so sad because I LOVE cinnamon raisin bread. I made several mistakes–including using rapid rise yeast which just made the dough rise too much too fast outside the oven, and then it rather deflated when it started cooking. Also I wasn’t patient enough in kneading the dough to spread out the raisins, hence the loaf ended up really uneven. And finally, it just turned out pretty dry. So, really not my favorite 😦
