12 Days of Recipes {Day 10-Happy Xmas Eve!}

Wow!  We’re almost to the end of my 12 days of recipes, which means that Christmas is just around the corner.  Like tomorrow around the corner!

Since I am Jewish, my Christmas day doesn’t look like your typical Christmas (can you say Chinese food and a movie?!).  But this doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the smells of the season.

That’s where this recipe comes in handy!  After a half day of work, I baked up a loaf of this incredible smelling bread to bring with me this weekend.  I subbed in molasses for the honey because this bread was such a success!  And got a little lazy on the crust, smothering my bread with just cinnamon and sugar.

I ended up using whole wheat flour, so my bread looks a little more dense.  It still tastes delightful, but if you’re not used to the added fiber, just use all white flour.

The best thing about this recipe…it bakes up two loaves.  One for you and ONE for me : )

 

 

What do you eat Christmas morning?
