What's cookin'?

Raisin Bread

Well, ok, I used the bread machine, but I did have to measure stuff!

1 Cup water
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon salt
3 cup of bread flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 and 1/2 tablesoons dry milk (I didn't have any so I used reg. milk)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 and 3/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
3/4 cup of raisins.

Just chuck everything in the bread machine. It says to add the raisins when the machine beeps, but I find they don't get mixed in as well. So when it beeps I take the dough out and fold my raisins in by hand and then put it all back to finish up and bake. Then go watch the Young and the Restless and languish in the smell of bread!

Phew, baking is such hard work.
