Raise your hand if you love fruit cake!
Hmmm, I didn't think so. I once heard a joke that there has actually only been one fruit cake ever made and it keeps being re-gifted year after year. All of that gummy candied fruit inside a sweet bread sometimes soaked in rum? I. just. can't. But, I do really enjoy a good sweet loaf of bread. Today is Date-Nut Bread Day! Who knew? And while I don't think I have actually ever eaten Date Nut Bread, this day has inspired today's Merry Friday Fave #45!
What is your favorite flavor of sweet loaf bread?
Sweet loaves of bread are so great to give as gifts to friends during the holidays. They stir up pretty quickly, they make the house smell good and warm it up. You can give a loaf or make mini loaves or give slices on a tray of goodies, so sweet bread is very versatile. Not to mention all of the delicious flavors and ingredients you can make.
Madalynn says that she really likes Cinnamon Raisin Bread. Either of the recipes above can have raisins added to them and it would be awesome! The Cinnamon rolls are made with sprouted wheat. We turned the loaf into French Toast because I love French Toast.
So, skip the fruit cake and try one of these recipes. Your family will thank you. Any of them would be great gifts. Perfect for those last minute remembrances!
Merry Christmas from our homes to yours! We will talk to you next Tuesday!
