I've never made limpa bread homemade before, and it's been many years since I've eaten it. I wanted to make it for my Swedish father-in-law, who loves everything Swedish. I was concerned about the dough--it was very dense and didn't seem to rise at all. The bread came out of the oven moist, solid, and definitely flavored like limpa that I remember. My husband thought it was wonderful. Thank you for submitting this recipe for us to try.
Although the prep time is long, this bread is delicious and well worth the effort. A bread that I will now add to holiday traditional foods. The complex flavors are delightful! Certainly not a bread that can be made for every day, but one that can be looked forward to. Yum!
