Notes

PRO TIP:
  • Serve this loaf with a drizzle of honey, a slather of butter and a slice of ham.
  • Do not over mix or over beat the batter as it is similar to that of a muffin, hence mix it just until it is combined.
  • Fresh fruits are also a great addition into the loaf.
  • Bake these as mini muffins/muffin tray for 13-16 mins until risen and golden brown.
