The other day I thought I would make some bread in the bread maker. I have tried this recipe before and it is really good....cinnamon, raisin bread. So I mixed up all the ingredients, except the raisins. The recipe said to add them when the machine "beeped". I happily became involved in other work and didn't hear the beeps.
When I returned to the kitchen, I wondered if it had beeped. The machine clicked onto the rising mode! Oh, no, had I missed it? What to do? Well, I thought, maybe it will knead a bit again after the first kneading, so I opened up the lid and just dumped them in..... 30 minutes later, the raisins were right where I dumped them, getting big and puffy!
The bread went into the bake mode. So boy, did it smell good baking. The smell of cinnamon floated throughout the house! When it finished baking, I took out the bread with all the raisins around the top. A little hole in the top, after the first slice was cut, gave me a place to stuff any of those that had fallen off!
I got a big laugh out of the whole thing, but my, it was DELICIOUS. Looks aren't every thing. PASS THE BUTTER.
