  1. Was wondering where my ingredients disappeared to🤔. Great idea with the blog! Now I'm off to making another wonderful sweetbread because of you 🤗🤗

    1. Thank you so much for visiting my new website to get the list of ingredients. I made an executive decision to follow the example of the bigger channels. Thanks so much for your support, I appreciate you.

  2. Ive searched the internet for sweet bread recipes And all I see is people using mixers and sifting flour making it so complicated, it’s been many years and I couldn’t remember. I just remembered my grandmother baking all in one bowl using her hands. And your video is just like she used to make it !!! I can’t wait to try it this Christmas. Thank you so much. PS. I made your homemade bread as well this summer and it was amazing. Just like my grandmas

    1. Hello thank you so much for your wonderful comment. I too have a memory of my mother making her breads and cakes by hand - no mixer what so ever. Eventhough the mixers are very convenient I don't own one as I don't make cakes etc very often. So the machine would be under utilized if I did own one.
      I'm happy to know that you also use my bread recipe. All the best to you. Much love

  3. Hi Martina... do we HAVE to use the eggs?

    1. Yes the recipe requires that eggs be used. I will work on another recipe where eggs are not required. Thanks for visiting my website.

  4. Hi, Love your youtube channel. I've made a few of your delicious recipes.
