Cinnamon Bread: This is tough on my diet!
Last pm I baked up my last loaf of Artisan Bread from the batch I stirred up Tuesday. A word of caution, if you try to hold your bread in the refrig for a few days, be sure to wrap the bowl tight with saran wrap. The first time I did it I didn't have it sealed and it ran all over the refrig shelf. It looked sort of like the Blob, (remember that movie?) Anyway I did this loaf with olive oil, then brown sugar and cinnamon. The loaf comes out with very mild cinnamon to me, but it is so darn good toasted!
Wanted to add a comment for anyone reading this that if you want to try your regular bread using this method to get a nice crusty bread you can try it. And in place of the clay cloche, you can use a dutch oven. The secret is to raise the bread on a piece of parchment paper in a bowl, don't get to big a loaf, then get the dutch oven hot in the oven at 425 degrees. Slip the bread into the hot pan, put the lid on and bake for about 35 min. Would love to hear if any of my readers try this.
I know you are out there, my counter tells me someone is reading this. If so thanks for the interest.
And I know my big brother reads this, as he says its the only way he knows what I am up to.
Sorry Ray, I can't bring you a nice warm loaf of this!!!
