i made my very first king cake from scratch...it was absolutely delicious, if i do say so myself. i used this recipe with a little tweaking and i have to say that i was surprised at myself. until now i hadn't made any kinds of bread from scratch - what with all the rising and waiting and punchind and whatnot. i have to say that it was quite therapeutic! anyway here are a few photos of the creation:
i would definitely use this recipe again to just make the bread.
yum! happy mardi gras!
