A recipe from my husband's aunt and it's one of the best coffee breads I ever had. A fail-proof recipe for the beginner, it makes several coffee braids but also freezes nicely for later use when company shows up for coffee. Make sure your cardamon is fresh for best flavour. I usually use a large stand mixer and a dough hook for most of the kneading but there is something soothing about hand kneading dough too.
A dark, moist old-fashioned muffin, full of fruit. A recipe from a torn and tattered 1984 magazine insert of "Old Family Favourites". I usually double the batch and freeze some for a quick breakfast on the go.
