A friend of mine made me this bread at Christmas time. It was delicious, and I loved it even more since she told me it was clean. No reason to feel guilty. I am pretty sure that between me and Dan the loaf was gone in 48 hours! I asked her for the recipe the next time I saw her to share!
This is a great holiday gift, great to take to parties and even better just to enjoy yourself.
