If you can't stand the heat...

Beth's Basic Bread Book, by Beth Hensperger is exactly what the title states, a basic bread baking book, which is fine with me. Bread baking can be an intimidating kitchen activity, but this book clearly breaks down the process into a relatively easy and rewarding task. I plead guilty to being absent from the kitchen for awhile, the lure of summer and wine tasting had led me astray. But, I made it back to the kitchen to work some wonders once again. Even though it is still summer, hot in other words, I was itching to bake some bread, we all know the old adage if you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen. Well, the "Dish" can deal with the heat if delicious bread is the outcome!

The Cinnamon Swirl bread recipe is bread I chose to bake in this episode of “David’s Dish”. It’s a straightforward bread recipe with the bubbling yeast and the kneading of dough, lots of fun! After carefully following the recipe the result was one of the best bread baking experiences I have ever had, delicious bread and that Zen-like feeling  that comes with bread baking.  Bread baking is a beautiful thing, everyone, I mean everyone needs to do it.
