We spent two years living in Sydney when my daughters were young. The Fairy Bread that was always served at birthday parties is one of our fondest memories. My daughter is now 15 and still talks about it. It really is a perfect food for special occasions - it is so festive looking and delicious as well! Thanks for sharing!
My granddaughter had fun making this for my son's Taste of Australia party. I made Billy tea to go with this and the tim tam cookies I found at World Market. I think the sdults enjoyed the fairy bread as much as the children did. Thanks SilentCricket. Bullwinkle.
I shared a slice with Morgan this afternoon. We could hardly hear ourselves laugh with all the crunching going on inside our heads as we ate this. We thought it must sound like a million squirrels cracking open their stash of nuts they gathered. I took the butter knife and lightly pressed the sprinkles into the buttered bread. I did not feel like having *hundreds and thousands* of little ping pong balls bouncing all over the table and floor. I made this for * Zaar Cookbooks Tag* game 2008
Fantastic! It looks so pretty and it's delicious to boot!
My DD was delighted with this colorful treat. She was especially pleased to show it off to her friends and that they could make it themselves. We loved it with plain butter but also used some honey butter as a variation. Lovely!! You are missed Silent Cricket and your recipes are living on among the next generation of cooks.
Fantastic! An all time kids party favourite (and big kids favourite too ;)). Both my girls love this.
Made these for my 6 year old's birthday party. I'd post a pic but they look like Chef floWer's ;-) I cut them into shapes and they looked very pretty on a platter with other smal sandwiches cut into shapes. I was surprised to find that my mom was the biggest fan of these. I think I'll try colored sugar next time too. Great for a tea party or even just a snack. Thanks for posting these.
My mother used to make a version of this when I was a child many years ago. Only instead of sprinkles, she used regular sugar and sometimes added a little cinnamon.... this brought back so many memories. She called it "Sugar Bread"...
I have been making these for years but made it today for a special occasion, my daughter's (Little Miss) 4th birthday party. They are so popular with the kids I didn't get a chance to take a photo. I used a heart shape cookie cutter to make pretty heart shapes. Thank you SilentCriket for posting a good recipe with great memories. Update: Little Miss asked for more Fairy Bread for Supper so I made them and got a chance to take a photo. Thank you again for your post
We served this as part of my Daughter's 10th birthday party formal tea party.They were a perfect addition to our fun menu!
