So, here we have another tasty homemade comfort food to make as side dish; also, if you are of „our kind“, you can slice the bread for any savoury or sweet spread. Our favourite is thin layer of unsalted butter and Strawberry jam on the top.
The bread remains fresh for four days; at least we had it that long before it was all gone.
If you like adding edible seeds into the batter or garnish the top of bread , you may do so. Sort and quantities are optional.
