This showy nut bread comes from Bavaria in Southern Germany. The subtle spices compliment the ground nuts. This bread is good at room temperature, but warming it brings out the flavors even more.
As you bring a piece of this Lemon Pepper Bread to your mouth, you’ll smell a hint of citrus that offers a wonderful contrast to the mild heat of the cracked pepper that follows. Not quite sweet and sour, but close.
I do so love an herb bread. Thought it was about time to honor the bastard step child of the seed family: celery seeds. In the allergen hall of fame, celery seeds are second only to peanuts. Bet you didn’t know that.
I wanted to use corn. But I didn’t. Fortunately, I don’t lug around my regrets. There is always a next time… and there most definitely will be. This bread has a sweet, mellow, warmth.
I made this bread with powdered milk. I do not like powdered milk. Frankly, I would rather drink rehydrated platypus urine. But the bread! Oh, the bread is wonderful.
I served these to some friends at a recent dinner party. They were soft, light, and buttery. Which is how I like my friends.
I’m surprised this recipe came out as nicely as it did, because boy did I mess it up. This was my first time making brioche…
Mom made this Stollen every Christmas and the thought of it brings back a torrent of wonderful memories. It looks like it may be heavy or hard, but actually it is light and sweet with chewy bits and icing drizzle and all sorts of magical goodness.
