I got the baking done in time, but just didn’t get the blog entry done in time to post on Tuesday. Thank goodness this was very easy or I would not have even done the baking. This has been one of those weeks! Just four ingredients, stirred together and baked…so easy. While this tasted good, I will have to admit that I am a much bigger fan of other types of bread. It was excellent with some homemade Kumquat Marmalade and we also used it under Sloppy Joes for dinner one evening.
