Personal Notes:
This breakfast bread is yummy, yummy, yummy! It is always good to make it on a cool day in the fall. Cooking has always been one of my favorite hobbies, even before I met Dan and I loved to bake.
Right before Dan and I started seeing each other, it was his birthday and I wanted to make something for him that would spark his interest for me a little more. So, I picked this bread. I whipped up a batch and through it into the oven. Because I was so hasty, I kept peeking into the oven trying to see if it was done. When it was ready, the entire masterpiece had sunk to the bottom of the pan. It looked like a crater had hit it! What a mess! The moral of the story: This is a bread that deserves patience. Follow each step carefully and you should have no problems. He did however think that it was pretty yummy and it must have won his heart over!
