So we took Christmas pictures this week and me and mom were getting clothes out, trying to coordinate colors (getting 10 outfits that don’t clash is hard) and then find the right spot where none of us are in the shadows, etc. and Dad (typical male) was like, “can we just take the picture?”
Whoa. That’s quite the accusation, Dad.
While I was practicing physics problems in my room, Elizabeth and Abigail walked in and needed something to do. I handed them my Taste of Home magazines to flip through and they picked a chocolate peppermint loaf. Since we didn’t have candy canes to sprinkle on top, I decided to use what we needed to use up – raspberries. You can use fresh or frozen, although I don’t know where you’ll find fresh … we made this several weeks ago!
Now, I obviously omitted the mint extract … however, I also forgot to add the chocolate chips. So in those photos, there are no chocolate chips. DON’T OMIT THEM. It is fine without them, but it is great with them! 🙂
Chocolate and raspberry makes a great combination for this bread. The raspberries add moisture and pair nicely with the light, sweet loaf. Here’s to a quiet afternoon with a slice of bread and a hot drink!
