I began the 9th challenge with taking a photo progress of the recipe so I could post them on my NEW blog (being of the 'Older Generation' this was a mile stone in technological acheivement!).There fore I set out all the ingtredients for the Cinnamon Raisin Walnut Bread on my island.Pleased with the arrangement,took the first photo. 
I then began the process of making the dough,..what the...why do I have a batter spining   in my mixer ( just as I don't know why the font size changed?) Ok, I was supposed to have 1/2 cup of buttermilk, I had mistakenly poured out a full cup,and used it.So now ,added flour ,about 1&1/2 cups to get a kneadable dough.When it was done,threw it into a zip lock bag ,coated on the inside with spray oil,put it in the fridge for a tommorrow something.
Then began the recipe over again,this time using accurate measurements.All went smootly,the loaves were great,delicious.
NOW,next day,well I have always embellished breads and buns before,what could I do with this goof dough?Being ( both of us) CHOCOHOLICS, the answer was simple,add dark chocolate chips to the filling.Now ,not just any chocolate,it has to be Gheradelli 60* cocoa chips.
 Wait! I just remembered I have homemade almond paste in the freezer from the 7 layer cookies I made for Chrustmas.I'll make one loaf with almond paste and chocolate chips and the other with raisins,walnuts and chocolate chips!
In retrospect, I would knead in the chocolate chips ,as they were a bit over powering in oneswirl.
 So, Here are the photos of the #9 GOOF loaf ,another way to create something delicious out of an otherwise mistake.We are limited only by our imagination...!!
