Dead on time!

I am 2 1/2 weeks late but I made Day of the Dead bread, Pan de Muerto, yesterday!  This was a first and while it isn't quite as good as the bread we bought in Toronto it is tasty!  The orange zest and anise are lovely.  (The recipe is from the book Day of the Dead by Kitty Williams and Stevie Mack.)

  Here's the scary part:  I actually found yeast that grows!  And grows and grows and GROWS!  It didn't STOP growing, overflowing the bowl and oozing onto the counter!  Wow!  Luckily it was easy to beat down!

The house smelled so good...

...and here are the finished loaves!
