Tips & Variations

No special items needed.


This bread is quite delicious! I just had to make it because it is so different. I used beans in tomato sauce and added a wee bit more cinnamon (because we like it). The breads turned out moist and flavourful. I love toasted cake, so looking forward to trying this with a slather of butter. Thank you so much WhatamIgonnaeatnext? for sharing.
