TWD: Oatmeal Breakfast Bread

A couple of Saturdays ago, I decided to depart from the normal breakfast of cold cereal and bake the TWD Oatmeal Breakfast Bread. It was definitely a good choice. You just can't beat a nice moist bread with a streusel topping.



Instead of raisins, I chose to add dates. Dried sour cherries were a close second, but the dates won out. They were ideal, too, contributing to the moistness and the subtle sweetness.



While it's not very photogenic, the taste is wonderful, truly a nice change from the usual weekend breakfast treat.

Natalie of
Oven Love made a great choice. You can find the recipe on her blog. The other TWD bakers have made some lovely variations of this bread, so be sure and stop by to take a look.

I was going to use dates too. But then I realized I had none. Sounds like you liked it a lot. It is nice to have something besides cereal once in awhile.

I find brown food is so hard to photograph, but honestly, I love the first pic - looks very appetizing.

Dates are a wonderful addition to this bread. I'm going to make a note of that for next time.

Dates sound oh so good in this. It all looks wonderfully delicious inside and out, maybe I should make it again.
