BBA Challenge – Artos

Artos is a Greek Celebration bread.  It is sweet and spicy with a sticky glaze drizzled over top.  Typically it is one gigantic loaf.  Not kidding about the gigantic.  One BBAC participant claimed her loaf was so large someone confused it for a turkey.  I decided to instead make 8 rolls (the finished roll is about the size of a grapefruit).  My husband is anti-raisin, while I enjoy them – so 4 of the rolls have raisins, and 4 without.  I also opted to grind the spices myself with a coffee grinder.  The results are an extremely fragrant bread – it smelled AMAZING while it was baking.
