This post marks the last of 2018. Members of my French family arrive today for the holiday season and I want to enjoy every second of their visit. New posts will continue in the new year! The easiest way to find inspiration during the next few weeks will be to type a keyword into the search engine at the bottom of my blog. Try searching “ginger”, “molasses”, “apple”, “Christmas”, “orange,” “gluten free”, and so on and so forth.
With that said, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! I could not be more grateful for your support and messages. It means the world to me when you try A Bee Bakes recipes. I will as always be here to answer any questions. And if you’re missing me (Mom and Dad, lol), follow @abeebakes Instagram where I’ll be posting stories and Holiday pictures.
Without further ado, I’d like to introduce the easiest, lazy-baker-friendly, yeasted cardamom sweet bread wreath. All you have to do is mix the ingredients. Wait for them to rise. Divide into two pieces, shape into a circle. Wait again. And bake. It’s not complicated at all. You don’t need to knead, the mixer does it for you. Or just stir a while with a wood spoon if you don’t have a mixer. The end result is the softest, fresh baked bread barely hinted with cardamom spice and sweetness. It’s the type of bread that makes your house smell amazing and insists upon being eaten while warm.
It’ll be just the right celebration bread for your holiday table. Add a few pieces of pine around for presentation. Or even try adding a few super thin (and tall) candles for another festive touch. Happy Holidays! 🙂
