Merry Christmas everyone! Just a note before I go further, I ate half of this loaf in one day 😀
This was hands down the most delicious bread I’ve ever baked! It doesn’t need anything like jam or honey on top, and you can eat it as breakfast, with morning or afternoon coffee/tea, or just as a healthy snack.
It is also somewhat of an nontraditional food for Christmas time. I was thinking of making a cranberry loaf the other day,but I thought why not try something more exciting?
This delicious pomegranate and pistachio loaf has colours of Christmas in it and it’s something everyone would love. I really encourage you to try it, I’m already thinking of baking it again 😛
The recipe is so easy you’ll memorize it after making it once, and there’s no proving time either, so it’s super quick to make.
I wish all of you a happy and safe holiday season and a wonderful new year ahead. I can’t wait to share more of the food I love with you next year. 🙂
