Plated + Served: Glorious Morning Glory Bread


Morning Glory Bread


Morning Glory Bread made me break my promise not to eat so much bread this year.

I’m totally blaming it on the bread, because I was looking for a recipe on what to do with leftover carrots and the words “MORNING GLORY” leapt off the page and, eventually, into my mixing bowl. I’ve made a few changes to the original recipe to make it easier.

The recipe was for muffins, but I liked the comforting idea of baking a loaf of bread (it was -8°F outside at the time). This moist, sweet bread is full of bits of dried fruit and nuts. It seems like it would be dense and heavy, but it’s not.

It’s simply… glorious.

    This bread has way too much good stuff in it to be bad for you. I would love a slice now and I already have a cup of coffee, lol. Thanks for sharing your recipe at Wake Up Wednesday Linky Party. I think I will be making some for my family also.
