This beautiful golden brown, sweet bread, is exactly how I remember it growing up with my polish grandma!
Did you watch either of the games yesterday? Do you even care? Do you even want to talk about it? Probably not. I know all you want to hear about is this fantastic sweet bread, but we’ll get to that. First, I must acknowledge the football games from yesterday, in honor of my husband and all that.
If you’ve been reading for any length of time, you know my husband is a pretty die hard Patriots fan. We’re from New England after all. He’s also got a pretty big man crush on brady. (sorry babe, just keepin’ it real.) Sundays are always devoted to football in our house, even my kids call it ‘football day’. So yesterday was a pretty big deal for him.
Needless to say, the fact that we moved to washington last year, and we’re huge pat’s fans…the superbowl is a pretty exciting event over here this year. As soon as the game ended last night, he says, “what in the hell am I going to do for the next two weeks?” (he means it too)
We were running errands before the games yesterday morning, and all four of us had a Patriots jersey on, and not even a full two minutes into the first store we were stopped by three seahawks fans…it’s going to be insane out here. Lots of the houses around us have seahawks flags, while we’re over here on our own private island, waving a Pats flag high and proud. Its entertaining to say the least.
I know that has nothing to do with this bread, but I couldn’t help but talk about it. My husband yesterday, was like my kids on Christmas morning. It’s hilarious.
So! What you’re really here for! Polish Sweet Bread. Have you ever had it? It used to be one of my most favorites growing up. A slice warmed up with a huge pat of salted butter..ahh total perfection. It’s breakfast, and a snack. And so worth the time.
There’s not much hands on time, but unlike most breads, it does require quite a bit of rise time, but its okay! Make this when you know you’re going to be lounging around your house for the day, and by the end of it, you will be so happy you did!
