Cinnamon Raisin Walnut Swirl Bread

Good. Another cinnamony creation ...I like these...Above is my wayward mise en place. Told you...

Dry ingredients mixed with wet to form a sticky mess...

6-8 minutes of dough hook kneeding...(I know, real breadmaking is about hand kneeding...the LOVE you put into the bread...I think the dough hook equally coveys the LOVE I would otherwise kneed into the bread myself...besides...I just had a steroid shot in my right shoulder due to chronic inflamation - So I think that's my note from the doc, Mr. Reinhart...)

Raisins & chopped walnuts...

They are being real wallflowers...not wanting to socialize with the dough...

Here is your handkneeding....

2 hour ferment...

HUGE RISE!

Optional cinnamon swirl prep...

Cinnamon & sugar...one of the best combos ever...

Roll it up & pinch the seam...

60-90 minute proof...

Another HUGE rise!

Out of the oven & prepping tops with butter...

Cinnamon sugar roll upsidedown...

Beautiful looking loaves!

A peek inside the end of the loaf...

But the real beauty lies within!

So pretty! A perfect swirl!






Here's the inside cinnamon sugar goo...Delicious!
