Please pass the bread…

My housemate made calzones for dinner but her first attempt left a lump of dough that just didn’t seem to be the right consistency. Rather than chucking the sticky dough, I attempted to turn it into Fruit Bread. Somewhat going by a random recipe I found in my book, I took a stab at playing with the dough blob and after a lot more flour, raisins, dried cranberries, fresh squeezed OJ, an egg, butter, a lot more flour, some milk, sugar, a lot of heat and a lot of time, voila! I made bread for the first time!!! It’s nice and light…and the perfect sweetness…who needs 85C when you can bake your own “FRESH BREAD!”

It worked!! Phew...

      Aww Laura…you’re too sweet. :) Nah…not everything…my blog just captures the successes and I try to forget all the failures.

    Yummy looking. Was this consistency more like banana bread or sliced bread? It looks like sliced bread, and you should sell this stuff.

      Haha..yah, but needs a whole lot more cinnamon and sugar in the dough. But not bad for salvaging a lump of dough that I had to de-dough and re-dough. I’m just glad it still turned into something edible. That was success in itself!
