So, I love the smell of homemade bread, but sometimes I feel like you put all that time and energy into making it, and then it smells better then it tastes. That is not the case with this recipe! The bread is definitely worth the time and energy that goes into making it. It’s kind of a sweet bread, so my favorite way to have it is either warm right out of the oven, or toast it with so apricot jelly! So amazing! But it is also so yummy with sandwiches or whatever you want to use it with.
