After last week’s newsletter we got a couple of requests from folks to post the Autumn Bread recipe my sister Calley and I created together specifically for our Caramel in a Tiny Bread Tin gift. This recipe units some of my favorite fall and holiday ingredients, including pumpkin, apples, cinnamon, walnuts, our own delicious cinnamon Goat’s Milk Caramel and my favorite ingredient – bourbon.
The following recipe makes the cutest darn mini-loaf you ever did see – happy baking!
