I love everything about this recipe. I love the flavor, I love the consistency, I love the softness of it, and I love licking the bowl; although I’m one of those people who doesn’t put nuts in mine. There are two reasons for me not adding nuts to my recipe.
One is, I didn’t like it as a kid and as I’ve grown older I like the soft bread texture with a crunchy top and not throughout the bread. Second is, my son is allergic to nuts so we can’t have them in our baked goods.
You can easily make this recipe using a stand mixer from kitchen aid. It is a fantastic tool that every kitchen needs.
