World Bread Day: Cream Cheese Fruit Bread

world bread day 2009 - yes we bake.(last day of sumbission october 17)Today is World Bread Day, and nothing is better than dragging out the bread machine and letting it make you some piping hot yumminess. Pity this bread wasn't really our cup of tea. Well, the boys wolfed it down, and Miss Three would have eaten hers, but it was so heavy and dense the slice broke when she tried to lift it, resulting in tears, and dried fruit mixed with vanilla yogurt. Not to worry, I ate hers. But I found that it was only the hint of cinnamon and the dried fruit that made it nice at all. Perhaps if you had fussy children that needed their dairy hidden, this would be great, but I don't see the point of the cheese except to ruin the texture of the bread. Still, it got rave reviews, so it could be just me.

Cinnamon Cranberry Cream Cheese Bread adapted from Allrecipes
1/3 cup milk
1 cup cream cheese, diced
1/4 cup margarine
1 egg
3 TBSP sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups bread flour
2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
2 tsp Dutch cinnamon
2/3 cup dried cranberries
2/3 cup diced dried apricots

Place everything into your bread machine and select Sweet loaf, Light crust. Serve hot with butter. Then head on over to Kochtopf to check out all the other yummy entries.

Don't forget to think (and cook!) pink for the Virtual Night In, raising money and awareness for Breast Cancer Research.
