I adore cinnamon anything. Cinnamon buns, cinnamon bread, cinnamon coffee cake, cinnamon straws, the list goes on. My recipe binder is overflowing with cinnamon recipes! In light of this, I have decided to try and take part in the Magazine Mondays group. The goal of this group is to bake our way through the various magazine recipes we've collected. It's a "self-help" group for those of us, like me, who have a recipe collecting addiction :) I'm looking forward to this!
I adapted Canadian Living Magazine's recipe for the Cranberry Chocolate Twist, except I used raisins instead of Craisins because I didn't have any. The combination of raisins and chocolate was a little odd for my palate so next time I'll leave out either the raisins or the chocolate, but other than that, I enjoyed this recipe. It was a lot of fun rolling the dough up then cutting it down the middle and twisting it. That's the best part of yeast doughs - the flexibility it allows and all the shapes you can create from it. I wanted to frost it with cream cheese but the finished product was too pretty to cover up so I just did a simple icing drizzle on top.
