I love making and eating fresh yeast cakes. I think it´s because the whole making & rising process is so magical. The dough seems to be really alive and responds to every gentle touch with cute air bubbles and beautiful softness. I made this cake with raisins only and ate it as an snack with coffee. I like it plain and slightly warm, but adding a small dollop of butter or jam never hurts. The original recipe is for “The Pioneer Woman`s” cinnamon rolls, which are really epic and I´ve made them so often than I could recite the whole recipe in the middle of the night. I´ve made few changes, because the original recipe makes A LOT of rolls. The adding of baking powder and soda makes the dough unbelievably fluffy and soft. It´s my favorite recipe and I couldn’t imagine my life without this dough anymore. Yes, it´s really that good. Normally, the dough should turn out snowy white (when you use all purpose flour), but I used maple syrup instead of sugar, so it´s a little darker, but feel free to use any sweetener you like! Happy Easter!!!
