“Will, Will! We’re having that bread Mommy gave us yesterday for breakfast with strawberries!” Paige chirped to her brother after sneaking a peek at the counter where I was preparing breakfast. There were smiles and dashes for the table. Then the “mmms …” I don’t think I will ever tire of hearing Will say, “Mommy, this is great.” (For the record, when something isn’t great, he tells me.)
This bread is significant to me because it’s been awhile since I last baked. Between traveling and work, it fell by the wayside. But I’ve missed it a lot. This was kind of like the gateway bake … preparing for more. If all goes well, my cookie jar will be filled this weekend for the first time in too long. But for now, I baked this moist bread swirled with chocolate and banana.
