Hey lovely readers 🙂
Hope you all had a great start into 2017 and could enjoy christmas with family and friends (and hopefully a bit more snow as we had in Switzerland).
I know that I haven’t published a blogpost for a while and since even the boyfriend of my cousine mentioned something in the way like „pretty long time no blogpost, hm?“, I thought it might be time for a new one.
I planed to bake these breads for christmas but finally ended up being so much in a hurry with a) last christmas gift shopping and b) exam preparation… (and a little bit with hanging around at the christmas market, drinking „Glühwein“ and all the stuff you HAVE TO DO during that time of the year… 😉 ) that it was only now that I baked them. Honestly – It’s only recently that I’ve started cooking more often, so I’ve never really done a dough and I have to improve haha! But I wouldn’t post the recipe If I wasn’t convinced, so If you guys like it a bit fruity and sweet but still want it healthy – try out these fruit breads. I confess, I could easily eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner and they turn out best when you store them in the freezer and warm them up in the oven for 10 min (200 degrees), let them cool down for 5-10 min and eat them straight away ;).
And sorry for the bad quality of the pictures: my camera ran out of battery…
