Here's a (raisin) toast to GW

I meant to post a picture of the raisin bread toast yesterday along with the fresh new loaf of bread, but I overexposed the image and ate the toast before I knew it.

So. . .Breakfast THIS morning--a thick slice of cinnamon raisin toast with TJ's greek honey yogurt. And coffee, of course!

It doesn't get any better than this.
Thanks again, GW. I do love the Zoji.

I agree - it doesn't! I love me some raisin toast.

Mmmmm, can almost taste the cinnamon. NancyLouise

RE: Here's a (raisin) toast to GW

Oh dear, that looks delicious. And I already had a big breakfast. Mmmmm....

Thud! It's beautiful! I love raisin toast (Pepperidge Farms', that is), but I haven't baked my own in quite a few years. That photo makes me want to get back in the water!

Pepperidge Farms used to be my Go To Raisin Bread. It isn't even close to this in texture (crust and interior) and taste. Even better, IMO, than the great raisin bread at Louisville's prestigious Blue Dog Bakery.

Still so much--almost everything! --that I don't know about bread, though. I wonder how much better the raisin bread could be if I stopped after the dough cycle and baked it in the oven as many here do.

Goldgirl, Annie, and NancyLouise--the Zoji thanks you.

I've been reading the Bread Machine for Dummies book that Grainlady recommended for beginners. The ''Bread Machine 101 Info'' is exactly what I need.

I think the next loaf may be ArabellaMiller's recipe in the GW cooking thread I linked below. Anyway, lots to play with.

Here is a link that might be useful: Lots of info for beginners here.

Bellsmom- That looks super scrumptious! DH has been on a business trip the last couple of weeks and DD has basically requested white bread as a treat :) I love cinnamon raisin bread. And the Greek yogurt sounds lovely with it.

RE: Here's a (raisin) toast to GW

Very enticing and motivating! I've got to check my "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day" for a raisin bread. Certainly would be better to use homemade for my stuffed French Toast.

RE: Here's a (raisin) toast to GW

GWlolo, I wish I had a fraction of your knowledge of bread making. It's kinda like I am looking into a whole world (or maybe a bakery display window) through a door that is barely ajar. But GW helps me keep edging the opening wider.

This raisin bread would make an unbelievably great french toast casserole. I'll have to wait until we have company coming to try it, because it is just DH and I at home now. Have you shared your stuffed french toast recipe? I would love to try it.
