Nothing better for a Sunday brunch than a Sunday Brunch with your favorite food! I even kicked it up a notch by making home made Cinnamon Raisin Bread, then made French Toast with it! Ohh La La! I know, I know……so freakin good! The bread was very dense, so I poked a few holes in it to let the milk mixture soak in more. Oh dear me, it was really- really- REally good! You can make the bread a few days ahead of time and whip the French toast together whenever your Sunday morning tummy calls to you!! For me, it was after running the dogs and boy did it hit the Spot!!! Ruff!
Cinnamon Raisin Bread
1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons milk (heated to 105˚)
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 Tablespoons butter
3 cups bread flour
2 Tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 1/4 teaspoons yeast
1/2 cup raisins
I like to select the Light Crust setting on my bread machine. Place ingredients in bread machine according to your machines directions. I used the above order in mine, didn’t seem to hurt it! Hit start, and go on an adventure for the next three hours! (I actually added the raisins about 20 minutes into the cycle. You want to get the ingredients combined first. ;-)
Zee French Toast
3/4 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (yes, it’s not too much!)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
dash of sugar
4 – 6 slices of Cinnamon Bread sliced medium to thick (your preference)
Turn on oven to 200˚ if you want to keep your slices warm while making the other! A personal preference of mine.
In a cake pan or something wide enough to place the slices of bread in, mix all the ingredients except butter. In a medium pan, melt your butter. Dip bread slices in mixture and place in pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each depending on heat and how brown you like your toast.
Make a perfect cup of jo to go along with this perfect combination. You won’t be disappointed.
We threw on some Earl Klugh (Iiiiii Know…..been awhile) and definitely called it a relaxing Super Sunny Sunday!
Wore my mini Napa…….(Iiiiii know….been awhile)!
