Baking became one of the most favourite passion sincever the yeast god behaved so friendly with me, its been a routine now am making breads at home. One cant describe the happiness when you bake your bread at home and the aroma of the freshly baked bread just with a word, you should bake to know this. Bread baking is an art am still a crawling baby when its comes to bread baking, actually am yet to experiment with the famous 'Sourdough starter' finally am planning to make them soon at home. Since sourdough need loads of patience now am ready to give a try at home. Trust me am so excited to start making my sourdough starter at home. Looking for an auspicious day to kick start the sourdough starter,lol.. Coming to today's post, this tea rings is called Vetekrans aka Swedish tea rings, this bread rings goes almost for the ingredients we goes for cinnamon rolls, but the filling goes for black raisins. One of the easiest bread rings even a novice baker can give a try to this incredibly flavored tea rings.

If you havent seen me recently visiting your spaces, this is the reason behind my silence.Let me stop blabbering, ok this post is this month's for Baking Eggless,a monthly event owned by Gayathri.The original recipe goes for an egg, which wasnt that much hard to replace. Just skip the egg part and add any egg subsitute of your wish, i prepared mine with hung curd instead of eggs. Also i went for small quantity of raisins as my kids arent big fans of this dry fruits,however this tea rings makes an excellent,filling evening snacks with your favourite drink.
