This coffee bread was super yummy. Everyone liked it a lot too. We could have eaten all of it if we weren't so full from dinner. It was great to have some on Christmas day as well. In fact I was so excited to have more of it that I have baked two more loaves to share at a H family reunion over New Year's weekend.
This is the 60th post as I approach one year of blogging about bread baking. It has been a good learning experience. I realize I got behind in posting and didn't have insightful comments in the last 8-10 posts. But now I am caught up.
I'll be back in 2012!
