Sweet Bread (Barbados)

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by GiddyUpGo

This recipe is from week 23 of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every nation on Earth, and Barbados is my 23rd stop. I served this as a dessert, but Bajans usually have it as a snack with a cup of hot tea.

Most delicious bread I have ever tasted. It is heavy and I ate a slice with extra shape cracker Barrel cheese. Thanks.
