The wonderful smell of potpourri in a bread… cran-raspberry juice, apple, orange peel, coriander, ginger. Not a sweet bread like cinnamon rolls, but sweet like a kiss on the cheek.
“This recipe was given to me in Dallas by a 90-year old lady in our church. It had been used in her family for many years.” — Betsy Oppenneer
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.
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…
Seriously. Let’s get crazy and throw some dragon fruit, orange juice, dates, cranberries and coriander into a sweet roll bread and drizzle some buttercream icing on it. Hallelujah.
