The crunch in each bite. The slight hint of sweetness. And then those grape nuts.
Do you like that steak knife I used to cut through bread? I’m not know for my patience. That bread was getting sliced by the closest, sharpest object.
I soaked those little grape nuts for 20 minutes in buttermilk. They swelled and softened. There seemed little chance that the crunch could remain. Those crunchy nuts are practically indestructible.
Hands down, this is my favorite bread. It’s one of the most viewed posts from the blog, too. I thought it deserved an honorary mention for remaining so popular.
Also, I haven’t baked it in a couple of years. Fairly sure my children are tired of banana bread.
Baking was not on my list today, but sometimes lists need a swift kick in the butt.
Unless it’s in a recipe.
Here’s it is from Mast Store Cooks and Kitty Rominger.
