Don't you just love it when you find a hidden gem? It could be a long lost ring, a new novel, or a great place to eat in your local area. The rush of endorphins when you realise you've stumbled on a hidden gem give you a warm inner glow, and it makes you happy whenever you think of it.
This week's Tuesday with Dorie recipe, Oatmeal Breakfast Bread, chosen by Natalie of Oven Love, is a hidden gem. Despite its rather prosaic, homely name, this "bread" (which would be a cake under the Australian classification system) is a stunner. It has a sweet. crunchy brown sugar and nut top and a light, fluffy, fruity interior. Delicious!!!
I made my bread as muffins (because the loaf tin still hasn't appeared out of the boxes), and used dried pears as my fruit of choice for the batter. This bread is so swoon-worthy that this week, I am not sharing - these are all mine. In muffin size pieces, it is perfect for my morning tea at work.
Here's a peek inside:
