Tomorrow is my favorite holiday...Thanksgiving!!!
For Thanksgiving Day I've made Pumpkin Spice Muffins and a braided white bread!
Pumpkin Spice Muffin recipe found here.
The only change I made was adding a little more pumpkin because what the recipe called for was about 3/4 of a can and one of the reviews said it didn't have a strong pumpkin taste.
Mmm...Thanksgiving Day breakfast.
Also I made a braided white bread for Thanksgiving lunch with my extended family.
Here's my recipe.
Braided White Bread
scant 4 cups white bread flour, plus extra for dusting
1 tablespoon salt
1/4 cup olive oil
1/8 cup dry active yeast (activated with 1/2 teaspoon sugar and 1/2 cup warm water)
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, taking care not to put the yeast on top of the salt. Knead well for 5 minutes, then let rise covered for 1 hour.
Tip the dough out onto a lightly floured counter. Divide into 3 pieces. Roll each piece into a 12 inch snake. Braid these 3 together, rolling ends under. Let rise for 1 hour.
Braided & uncooked.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake with a pan of hot water for 25 minutes.
Take out of the oven and transfer onto a wire rack to cool.
Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!
