My good friend Craig, otherwise known as my big gay in-town boyfriend, sent me a link to a blog that got his tastebuds chattering. It was for a recipe for cinnamon sugar pull apart bread. It did look pretty tasty and easy. So I got out the big pastry board.
Forgetting that it was still a bread, which meant rising and proofing and all the stuff that goes along with making bread.
Still who can resist hot cinnamon bread straight out of the oven? Actually I backtracked on the links and the original recipe wasn't even a cinnamon bread but a lemon pull apart bread with icing that if I'd had lemons in the house would have also made. That recipe will have to wait for another weekend.
Now the thing I love about the internet and recipes is that you get the benefit of someone else making the recipe and posting comments about their successes, failures and hints. One of the hints on all these pull apart blog postings is that just because the top of the bread might be golden brown, the interior might not be done enough. Hence my well done top.
Damn, that looks very much like a Shar Pei's ass.
