For the bread, I used a recipe for Raisin Bread and left out the raisins because C doesn't like them. I make a 1/2 pound loaf in the bread maker:
8.5oz water, 90-100* (1 c + 1 Tbsp)
2 2/3 C flour (I use 1/2 white and 1/2 wheat)
2 Tbsp dry milk
1 1/2 Tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp butter
2 tsp active dry yeast
3/4 cup raisins and 1/2 cup chopped nuts (we skip both of these)
1 - Add liquid to pan
2 -Add dry ingredients, except yeast to pan. Level it all out and divide the butter to put in the corners.
3 - Here is where I sprinkled in more cinnamon and sugar so it would be stronger...I made this Monday and the cinnamon was pretty faint.
4 - Make a well in the middle of dry ingredients and put the yeast in the well.
5 - If adding nuts/raisins - add during the kneeding.
Ours runs for 3 hours and 10 minutes so I set it to be ready when we are waking up. It is so good hot with butter. We ate the whole loaf for breakfast!
And crabbies. We do love us some crabbies! This recipe is in a book my mom made for us girls full of old family recipes. I just scanned in the page instead of typing it up (in hindsight, I should have done that for the bread too - lol). We just have to mention crabbies and my dad is heading to the store for ingredients! Oh and all three of my picky eaters LOVE these. There are never any left on the plate.
These were our New Year's Eve batch. I painted that plate when we were in AL - it has all of our names under the crabbies :)
