TWD- Raisin Swirl Bread

Ok, there are a lot of raisin-haters out there. I don't love raisins, either. But I'm ok with raisins in cinnamon bread and cinnamon rolls. I was tempted to put chocolate chips in this bread, but my family wanted raisins.
This bread, a white loaf with a cinnamon/sugar/cocoa powder swirl filled with raisins. I forgot to brush the top with butter before baking, but it was really yummy.

The middle was a little doughy, but I figured it would make great toast! :)
Head to food.baby for the delicious recipe!

TWD- Tender Shortcakes and Ballerina Cake

Ok, this week's TWD was a little better than last week's. A little.
I don't know what it is, but I'm not a fan of shortbread, shortcakes, etc. "Moist" is not a word I associate with such "desserts," if they may be called that. These little shortcakes were easy to make, they came together in just a few minutes. They are crumbly and weren't bad with lots of berries and whipped cream. Perhaps someone can enlighten me on why, whenever I make something like this, there's some kind of bitterness present? Anyone else have that happen?
Cathy has the recipe (and a great blog)!

TWD- White Chocolate Brownies

I'll make this short, but not so sweet. Meringue and brownies do not mix. And brownies should not be made with white chocolate. Sorry, but I thought these were awful. But if you're interested, the recipe is here.
