Yes...it's Sunday again. More goodness from the Sweet Melissa Sunday cookbook. This week Lorelei from Mermaid Sweets picked the recipe and you can visit her blog for more information on the recipe. I was excited to try this (I think I say that every week!!) because I love sweet potatoes but never know what to do with them. This week...bread. But I will warn you...it's definitely MORE cake-like!
To be honest, it was a bit strange to have my house smelling like fall and Thanksgiving in April. The cake (I mean, bread) was delicious. Moist, dense, sweet...all of the above! This would make wonderful holiday gifts if you baked it in those individual loaf pans.
Now for the glaze. Oh the glaze, how I love thee!! I used Malibu Rum (because that's what I had) and the flavor blended nicely with the cinnamon. The glaze is a sugar/rum/orange juice/cinnamon stick blend that you reduce on the stove top before brushing it right on the warm cake (I mean, bread).
The cake (I mean, the bread) was delicious by itself. With the glaze, it was great. YUM! I made this Thursday night and when I came home from work on Friday...this is what I found.
Thank goodness my family left me a piece so I could photograph it!! My kids raved about this cake (I mean, bread). They loved it. I would definitely recommend it, I hope to pull this recipe out in the fall and make it again.
Check out all the SMS Bakers to see what they did with the recipe this week. Thanks for stopping by and have a sweet Sunday!!
