Happy Hump Day!

On Monday, I shared with you a magical cake with healing powers that could make all your troubles disappear.

Well guess what? Today I have another magical recipe that also possesses superpowers of unfathomable greatness and glory…

Eh, no. It won’t make you skinny. But it does do the next best thing!

This bread makes you feel like you’re getting a hug from your Mom.  I’m dead serious.

When you’re having a rotten, no-good day, make this bread. Curl up on the sofa with a blanket while it bakes, read a book, and breathe in the heavenly aroma that fills your house. And then, when it’s done, cut a really thick slice and slather it with salted butter (note the melted chocolate swirling with the butter). Close your eyes and take a bite.

BAM. Mom’s there hugging you.

I’m telling you– it works.

I hope you love this recipe as much as my family does! I know you will. ☺️

    This recipe is absolutely delicious and extremely easy to make. I made half the quantity and ate almost the entire thing. My husband, who doesn’t have a sweet tooth loved it as well, although he only got a couple of pieces.i am entertaining this weekend and am going to check out some more of your excellent deserts- hope to find some more of your moms recipes.

    Any tips for making muffins instead of a loaf? I think these would be perfect for Christmas gifts, and I’m not up for baking several loaves. :)

      Just pour the batter into muffin liners and bake for 20 minutes :) We do this often!

    I never knew you could make recipes like this without butter! I guess this truly shows how much I still need to learn! Great recipe by the way!

    This looks SOSOSO yummy!! It’s very similar to my recipe! I’ve tried making it with applesauce, whole wheat flour, etc. but it’s just not quite the same. YUM!
