You’re going to be so glad you stopped by today. You’re probably right in the throes of the holiday season and I’m going to give you some advice that will make this Christmas insanely magical for you.
Are you ready for it?
Make this bread. Period.
Make it once and you’ll make it ten more times this week. Wrap it up with a sweet little tag and hand it out as gifts to anyone who didn’t make the naughty list this year. Heck, give it to the naughty people. It’s good for their soul.
It’s seriously that good. And completely over the top with some good coffee to go with it. Or, out of this world with a cup of coffee and a really good friend to share it with.
It’s incredibly moist. And deliciously spicy. And needs nothing more than a simple glaze on top.
What’s your most comforting flavor of the holiday season?
