READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Chickee

Recipe from Bill Granger from the Sydney Morning Herald- served at Bill's cafes in Sydney. This is great toasted with butter and a little icing sugar sifted over it! Be careful to test with a skewer though, it might need a little longer cooking.

*Made for Australia/NZ Swap #43* Followed the easy directions faithfully. baked for 1 hour and tested done with a toothpick. Sliced, toasted, buttered, and sprinkled with 10X sugar for dessert tonight. A lovely not-too-sweet bread for breakfast for the next few days. Thanks for posting, Chickee!

  5. Leave in the tin to cool for 5 minutes, remove to cool further on a wire rack. Serve in thick slices, toasted, buttered and dusted with icing sugar.
  6. Makes 8-10 thick slices.
