TWD : Raisin Swirl Bread


I want to warmly thank Susan of Food Baby, our weekly host, because this was almost the first time my husband showed his enthusiasm for something sweet and asked for more !!
This loaf is actually delightful I made it a bit less fat and sweet omitting the sugar and the butter from the filling not loosing any deliciousness I think.
I realized I should have rolled my dough thinner but I know this will be a recipe made a lot so I'll get a better look in the future !



Pleas visit Susan for the recipe and my colleagues for more swirls !

It looks great to me! Less fat is always a good thing!
I added some cinnamon chips to mine and it was so yummy!!

I made mine with skim milk to lessen the fat.

Romaine said...

Doesn't look like you lost a thing by leaving out some of the sugar and butter. I will try that next time myself.

Peggy said...

Natalia it is beautiful. You did a great job as always. I think mine needed a bit more cinnamon, but we loved it anyway!

Tia said...

It looks wonderful! That was a good idea to leave the butter out of the swirl. This did not need any extra butter!

Spike said...

the swirl you achieved looks perfect- i'm jealous!

Heather Davis said...

Clever idea not to add all that butter and sugar. Wouldn't have to feel quite so guility about eating it then. Will give it a go next time.

This would be great with eggs and bacon. Tell your kids it was my idea.

You sometimes have to wonder how Dorie has so many such terrific recipes.
This looks great. I'd be with you on cutting sugar & butter - just enough to leave good flavor.

Love your swirls! :) I use skim milk and Splenda for Baking in almost everything I make - you can't tell the difference! So glad you and your husband liked this one so well!

Lori said...

I just made some swirl bread yesterday. How funny is that?

I love these kind of breads and yours looks fantastic.

Nickki said...

Your bread looks so good! Great idea to leave the butter out of the swirl, the bread had such a buttery taste anyway!

TeaLady said...

Looks great. Less fat you say. Perfect.

Katrina said...

I used skim milk, too.
Nice, perfect swirl. I really can't wait to make this as bread sometime--soon.
