It’s freezing cold here in good ol’ Salt Lake and we got pounded with snow over the week-end. I think we’ve had more snow in the valley in two days than we did all winter long last year. I love what my friend posted on facebook the other day : “I mowed my lawn last night and shoveled my walks this morning! Only in Utah.”
It is sooo true. . . . stupid weather!
My boys LOVE this weather. In fact, Parker was crying Saturday night because it had finally stopped snowing and was crying again Sunday because it was actually sunny and he didn’t want to snow to melt — I know, he’s kind of a nut job sometimes, but I love him dearly!
On cold, blizzardy days like we’ve had, I love to stay in and bake. I think nothing tastes better on cold, snowy days than a slice of warm, homemade bread with butter and jam or honey.
I love this recipe because it’s so quick and simple. It’s the perfect recipe for when you want homemade bread, but don’t have time for the yeast breads that have to raise. This is one of those “instant gratification” recipes. I love it!
This bread is delicious! We love it with a warm bowl of soup. We love to toast it and slather it with homemade raspberry jam. I have to control myself because I could eat the whole loaf (seriously I could!).
Hope you enjoy it!
