Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



The aroma of this bread baking had the family circling the oven until it came out! I did not get a pic of this as after the required cooling time as they hoovered it all up in a nano second! YIKES! The flavour is amazing, the texture perfect. Mine baked in 45 minutes (probably due to a wee bit larger pan)and it is quick and easy to put together. Will be making this again soon and will take a pic this time. Thanks Sue for another wonderful recipe! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
