Midnight Baking Special Edition: Sourdough

I love learning how to do early home crafts. I knit and spin and sing and sweep and keep my homely hearths--and I bake bread in the middle of the night:) Actually this one I will set for a slow rise in the basement and take it up tomorrow to be baked. I set up another starter to double to make a sweetbread I've made once before... Oh, that reminds me. I need to soak some dried fruit to put in it. Thanks:)

Sourdough = Winning!

Bread with chunks of fruit in = Ehh... not so much.

No cinnamon raisin bread? This is the recipe I used, and they came out beautifully. Will try to post pics.

Cinnamon raisin bread is good toasted with large amounts of butter melted over it, I grant you. But it's not really chunks of fruit, is it? It's more whole pieces.

Anyway, I stand by my assertion in a general way and will not be swayed by trifling exceptions to the rule. Am I not used to such a state? Do I not speak English?

I used currants. Your command of the English language is... remarkable...

I intended to convey that, as a native speaker of English, I am accustomed to having many exceptions to rules.

I'm not sure how I feel about currants; I so rarely have the opportunity to eat them. But! I am certain that your bread was delicious.

I accept your conclusion, despite the circuitous route.
