favorite holiday bread
When the weather turns cool, I look forward to making bread. In summer, I must admit I am not inspired to make zucchini bread. When I have extra bananas, I am more likely to make these cupcakes, over banana bread. But come fall, I am jazzed to make pumpkin bread, pear bread and cranberry bread.
I put together the platter above with slices from all three of my favorite fall breads and a little crock of honey butter (mix up softened butter with honey).
While I waited for the fresh baked breads to cool, I studded clementines with cloves and watched holiday movies. They filled the house with such lovely smell and to share the festivity, I tucked a few in around the edge of the platter.
Both the pear and cranberry bread keep beautifully and would be a great treat to have on hand for house guests.
I wish you a beautiful Thanksgiving Holiday filled with delicious food and dear friends and family!
