Above is the same loaf of bread on Anna's kitchen counter. It's looking even better! They are very impressed with my new skills. So I'm very pleased. In the future, I am also going to try baking loaves in my cloche (a closed clay pot that I have and have not used in years). They say the crust is even better in a cloche.
We also took this iced bundt cake for them. I have posted the recipe here. This cake can be dry, so be sure not to over bake. I like the recipe because of the extracts that it uses. I have used vanilla and almond (1 1/2 t. each) and I have also done the recipe as printed. I think you could use any combination of flavorings that you would like. The cake is very sweet. It is so sweet that I cannot eat it on an empty stomach or my blood sugar crashes! I can't have this cake for breakfast! But it sure is good. And of course, I used the bundt pan that John and I found in the dump!
