Cinnamon Swirl Bread (TWD)

This week's Tuesdays With Dorie recipe for Raisin Swirl Bread is all about my baking frenemy, YEAST. Once in a blue moon, I will experience baking success with yeast. However, more times than not I've ended up with some pretty spectacular fails, and vowing during those moments to never to bake with yeast ever again (okay, I'm being a little melodramatic).

With this bread recipe, I'm happy to say that I've experienced yeast success! I opted to nix the raisins, but followed the rest of the recipe as written. Initially, as the dough was coming together it was soft and sticky, so the stand mixer w. dough hook definitely came in handy.
WOW - this bread was delicious! I've been taking nice thick slices of this bread, slathering them with butter and cinnamon sugar, and popping them in the toaster oven to make unbelievably yummy cinnamon toast.
Thanks to Susan of Food.Baby for making this fantastic selection, and helping me resolve my love/hate relationship with yeast. I highly encourage you to make this delicious bread - the complete recipe can be found at Susan's blog.

It's hard to believe you have a fear of yeast when I look at your pictures. Appears you are well on your way to mastering the stuff.

You definitely have a success on your hands with this one! I really like how many swirls you got. I think I will roll my dough larger next time to get extra wraps of the filling.

Wow, this swirl looks fabulous! Awesome job!! I'm sure it tastes just as good as it looks. Thanks for posting this. I just made Apple-Cinnamon Cream Cheese Swirl Loaf and it was delicious, but the swirl wasn't as great as yours.

Congratulations on a job very well done! The cake looks delicious and I can imagine just how yummy it is with all that butter, cinnamon and sugar on it.

I'd have made mine with raisins and nuts, but I'm greedy like that! lol
