Hi everyone, it’s Emma from Craftinge . I love homemade bread. It is so yummy and (in my opinion) way better than breads you by at the store, however I don’t usually get around to making many breads though because they are so time consuming. It seems like have to commit to the bread the whole day.

This is so easy. It’s called a sweet bread, but don’t let the title mislead you it tastes just like normal whole wheat bread (with just a touch more sweetness) but it uses no yeast.

Not only is this easy to make, but it is also yummy. In fact, my mom has made this bread for several other families and they have all asked for the recipe!
