My Sorta Bread Disaster....

I cannot believe it finally happened. I made a loaf of bread in my bread maker and it DID NOT turn out.

I was trying to make Raisin Bread. It usually looks like this:

And when I say usually, I mean every time I have made it before in more than one bread machine.

So this time, I thought I would add some pecans. Mmmmm...I love pecans and thought they would add a little something to my raisin bread. I used my regular raisin bread recipe and added all ingredients, except the raisins and pecans to the breadmaker.

When the "add ingredients" signal beeped, I added the nuts and raisins. I watched it for a few minutes and it didn't seem like the nuts and raisins were blending in, but I figured it would all blend together eventually. It always has before....though I have never added pecans.

When the loaf was done, the smell was heavenly! Mmmmm.....cinnamon, raisins and pecans. I could not wait to take it out and try it. I sliced into the loaf and.....weird....the top half of the slices are plain cinnamon bread and the bottom half are raisin and nut bread. It is the oddest thing! (I forgot to take a pic, so you will just have to believe me.)

It still tastes delicious, but it sure looks weird.

Yonca, thanks for coming by. You are right. I don't care how it looks. I made it for me and it is pretty darn good.

Ooh! I haven't tried adding nuts and other things to my breads before. That sounds good! However I'll probably just toss them in when I'm adding the ingredients.
With enough butter slathered on them, any homemade bread slices taste awesome!

Hi, McVal! I think next time, I might try adding the nuts with the rest of the ingredients, and just add the raisins at the "add" signal.

I added raisins at the start the first time I made it and my breadmaker mixed those raisins to bits. It was like raisin flavored bread. LOL!

I was so worried that it would taste bad. Who cares what it looks like as long as it tastes good!

But the bottom half tastes much more delicious than the top half. I should have cut the slices in half horizontally and told Hubby that I made cinnamon bread. (And eaten the best part myself.) LOL!
