You can candy fruit like cranberries, raisins or nuts like pecan chips or almond flakes to this recipe to make it even more decadent. If you’re someone who loves chocolate chips in a bread loaf, go ahead and add either semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips to it. Adding a handful of desiccated coconut flakes to the batter before you bake it will also give this bread a rich nutty texture. You could serve it with a cream cheese or lemon glaze for an edgy taste. Instead of baking it in a loaf pan, you can also make breakfast muffins by adding grated carrot or beets to the batter. Using the best vanilla extract will impact the flavor in bread or cake recipes. Always invest in the best vanilla extract preferably organic vanilla extract with no additives like corn syrup, sugar, etc. Make this homemade bread recipe the way you like it or the way your guests prefer. Either way, this recipe will be the show-stopper.
