It was easy. It rose well. And it tasted fantastic. I will definitely bake this bread again.
I stuck to the recipe this time. Only thing I changed was whiskeying up the raisins because mine were dug up from a container in the back of the pantry. The dough came together, just as it should, though not as wet as Dorie described. I forged on. It rose in the right time, rolled out well, rolled up well and baked up perfect. We toasted it up for breakfast 2 days in row. What a sweet weekend breakfast.
Thanks to Susan of Food.Baby for picking this yeasted treat. Check out her blog for the recipe and see all the other interpretations of this bread at the TWD blogroll.
