Dutch Sweet Bread

Oct 05


Hello from Madison, Wisconsin! I have been on a whirlwind work trip over the past week– four cities/towns in NY, Chicago, a wedding in PA, and now in Wisconsin.

Before I left, I did my recipe for the Secret Recipe Club. I was matched with Sawsan from Chef in Disguise. Every recipe on her site looks amazing! I had such a hard time deciding what to make but then settled on her dutch sweet bread, also known as peperkoek. It was a huge hit! I had it for breakfast, snack, and dessert– great flavors!
