I bought a loaf of the bread pictured above because I'd heard such good things about Canyon Bakehouse and had never tried their products, and also because I found myself dreaming of a cream cheese on date nut bread sandwich. Nowadays, cream cheese is something I'd never buy, but I'm always well-stocked with whipped cottage cheese (a local specialty of the Friendship brand), so I toasted up a couple of slices of this raisin bread and made a lower-fat, lower-calorie version of my dream sandwich. And it was, yes, pretty dreamy. The bread is rich, cinnamony, generously studded with raisins and absolutely divine.
This bread is so delicious that if I ever buy it again, it's going straight in to the freezer. I ate the entire loaf in two days! Every time I poured a cup of tea, it just seemed like the right time for a slice, and I drink a lot of tea. Given the amount of sugar and fat I use in my own bread, it's more like a dessert and I guess I've got to start treating it like one or I'll be in a serious poundage predicament pretty soon. Ah....the trials and tribulations of the gluten-free carboholic...
