Tuesdays With Dorie: Raisin Swirl Bread June 15, 2010

This weeks Tuesdays With Dorie was chosen by Susan of Food.Baby.  She picked Dorie’s Raisin Swirl Bread which is located on pages 59-60 in Baking: From My Home to Yours.  I LOVE me some Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Bread and with Dorie’s addition of Orange Zest in the bread and Cocoa Powder in the Swirl, what is there not to like about this recipe.  To kick it up just little bit more, I soaked the golden raisins in warm Cointreau until they plumped up.

And then to make me not feel so bad about the Cointreau, I replaced half of the flour with Whole Wheat Flour 🙂

The bread actually turned out perfect.  This morning I sliced up two pieces, toasted them, and spread a little butter on them.  It was very yummy.  While I was taking pictures this morning on the deck, I notice one of my Dahlias was looking extra pretty so here she is in all her glory 🙂
