Tuesdays with Dorie 2.0

Guess what time it is... it's time for Tuesdays with Dorie, Act 2. Hard to believe we took 4 years baking through Dorie Greenspan's book "Baking, From my Home to Yours". Now a bunch of us crazy bakers and bloggers have signed up to bake through another of Dorie's books "Baking with Julia".

The inaugural recipe was a humble one, "White Loaves". Yep, plain white bread.

It was my first time baking a loaf of yeast bread. I decided to bake half as a loaf and half as cinnamon rolls. I wish I'd gone with two loaves because a) this bread was a little heavy for cinnamon rolls and b) it was perfect for a wonderfully hearty piece of bread. Perfect with a slathering of butter and maybe a little better as toast... slathered with butter.

Great first recipe! I'm definitely a fan and will make this again.

If you'd like to join the fun, be sure to stop by the Tuesdays with Dorie blog and check out "The Rules". For the recipe, click on the link in the second paragraph. See you in two weeks!
