Mamgu's bara brith
Mamgu means grandma in Welsh. The recipe (if I'm at all truthful) doesn't belong to my mamgu but a family friend's nan! Bara brith means speckled bread. I love this cake spread with butter and a good cup of tea. Tips, if the cake browns quickly in your oven cover the tin with greaseproof paper and return to the oven.

Cranberry Apple Bread
This bread is a holiday favorite in our family. It's very festive and is a wonderful breakfast bread for Thanksgiving and Christmas morning. I like to prepare my bread batter ahead of time and thaw it out the night before I serve it. Just pop it in the oven in the morning and you have fresh breakfast bread. Enjoy!
