Betty Crocker Recipe Cards: Recipes Children Can Make/Card #15
It actually took a recipe that CHILDREN can make for me to achieve 100% success with the elusive yeast!!! I followed the recipe with a few exceptions (subbed cardamom for the cinnamon & bumped up the raisins). I held my breath while it was in the 'rising stage', popped it in the oven with a prayer...and out came the most beautiful, amazing, wonderful yeast bread!!
This is NOT a quick bread taste and not overly sweet. However, it is cerainly sweet enough to satisfy oneself, especially with a hot cup of coffee. But wait! There's more! If you think it's good the 1st day, it is OUT OF THIS WORLD the second day!!! The yeast bread softens and the spices really are more pronounced; it was sublime heated at Medium in the microwave for a minute and then liberal amounts of fresh butter slathered on the cut edges. I plan to serve this for years to come: as an afternoon snack, for a delicious but not too sweet Brunch addition...or just because! But, I will intentionally make it the day before since the bread is one of those recipes that improves with age.
