Melons aren’t the greatest keepers so this spiced cantaloupe tea loaf is the perfect destination for any melon abundance you may have!
You might think this is a weird combination, cantaloupe in a tea loaf? But why not! When I was making it, Remo, a.k.a hand model, a.k.a hubs, was complaining and kept making faces and saying gross, over and over again, but I kept saying you just wait and see. And if he wasn’t going to like it, well then I’d just be eating spiced cantaloupe tea loaf the whole day because this recipe makes 2 good size loafs.
