I did it in my bread machine. I did 2 braided loaves. And when they were braided I realized I forgot to add the raisins. They are very good. And the cardamom is not overpowering. Thanks Susie. Made for 123 hit wonders
Fantastic bread. I have to admit that I used my bread machine to pull all the ingredients together and knead and rise. Then I pulled it out and kneaded the raisins in, braided, and let rise. I made one in a loaf pan and left one free form, and they both baked in 30 minutes, no tenting necessary. I did sprinkle mine with poppy seeds (yum!). We loved the sweet spice of the cardamom. It's subtle - the family didn't recognize it, which is good, as cardamom can overpower. Definitely a keeper for my bread recipe collection! Thank you for posting, made for ZWT4.
