I was wrong.
I happen to love it. Go figure.
It’s easy to make.
tasty to eat,
and you probably have everything you need to make it.
You can really switch this up and add what ever you like. Currents are traditional, but some added different cheeses, onions, sun dried tomatoes, and the such. I added dried cherries.
I made my bread for my St. Patrick’s Day Dinner, but I now know it would be good any time of the year. It’s a sturdy bread using Baking Soda as it’s leavening agent instead of yeast. Four simple ingredients, about 5 minutes of hands on time, and 50 minutes of baking time, and your set!
Make it for dinner, toast leftovers for breakfast or make a delicious French Toast Casserole. If you have any leftovers, finish it up buy making croutons.
It’s a wonderful bread.
As usual, we wont post the recipe on out individual blogs, but you can find the recipe on both of our hostess’s blog. Cathy of My Culinary Mission made a loaf with Gruyere cheese, and Carla of Chocolate Moosey used Dried Cherries like me! It’s also on page 214 of Dorie’s cookbook Baking With Julia.
Dont forget to check out the Tuesdays With Dorie blog to see what everyone else thought of this recipe.
I say it’s a keeper!
