Yay, my oven heats evenly- baking bread

Over the holiday weekend I took some time to bake up a bit of bread.

After looking over the recipes I’d compiled on our computer that were “boat friendly” I chose a sweet bread called Cranberry Walnut Cinnamon Twist:

Baking Bread by Velocir

Dough:

1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup butter, 2 1/2 teaspoons yeast, 1 egg, 3 1/2 cups bread flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, 1 cup dried cranberries, 1 cup chopped walnuts

Filling:

1/4 cup butter, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 teaspoon cinnamon

Step 1: In a little oven tray, I melted the butter, and then added it to the water and milk, stirring to make sure the butter was completely melted.

Step 2: Let it cool a little and then add in sugar.  Beat in egg, add yeast and salt.  Slowly add in flour.

Step 3: When well combined, knead for 8 minutes and then let rise in a warm draft-free place for over an hour.

Step 4: Mix in walnuts and cranberries like you’re kneading them in.  Then let sit for about 30 min more.

Step 5: Roll it out on your pizza pan.  Then transfer it to wax paper or foil- whatever you like to use.  Smear it with the butter, sugar and cinnamon.

Step 6: Using a pizza cutter or knife, cut 1 inch strips.

Step 7: Roll the first piece up like a cinnamon bun and place on pizza tray.  Then using the other strips, add along the sides of the first to make it bigger.

Bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 mins.

Now I know my oven heats evenly!
