    Well, we are getting ready to go to a Thanksgiving pot-luck. I get to bring the duck-bread [​IMG]. This is my first time with this particular motif, so be gentle...

    Start with some flour and yeast...

    Add some eggs....

    Gotta be duck eggs (one had a thinner shell so the knife nicked the yolk).
    [​IMG]
    Mix it all up with some sugar and butter and milk.
    [​IMG]
    Once it is well mixed...
    [​IMG]
    Add flour...

    Add flour...

    Add plumped raisins to one half...
    [​IMG]
    Let rise...
    [​IMG]
    Punch down then put the raisin part inside the non-raisin part.
    [​IMG]
    Make look roughly like a duck and let rise.
    [​IMG]
    Bake and MMMMM.... Duck-bread!

    You could also make this into turtle bread if you wanted to. The raisin part would be the shell. ^.^

    I don't have any ducks yet, but I do bake bread and have to say, that's wonderful how your bread turned out. Good job!
