This Sweet and Spicy Pear Loaf is taking the lockdown bread making to a whole new level…and its well worth it.
Just look at it… Banana bread who?
I am no expert baker but if this bread recipe is one I can follow then so can you and the finished product is something to behold.
So on a different approach to why I think you should try this bread recipe is for your mental health. Take mindfulness, creativity and a dash of focus. Fold together gently, bake in a slow oven and watch your spirits rise. Yes, your time spent in the kitchen can enhance your mood and promote mental wellbeing. While cooking is clearly a means to satisfy the body’s need for food, it’s increasingly being recognised as a way of nurturing the mind. [According to Mind Food]
Im going to be honest that it is true for me too. I love the creativity involved in cooking and baking [although when it comes to baking i’m not great at following recipes – im more of a “wing it” type of baker] and then being able to create something that brings not only me joy but my friends and family too. Perhaps my kids take my cooking for granted [the macarons for Stevie’s baker baker were a masterpiece yet thrown around like fizzers] but it’s definitely more for me than anyone else. If you enjoy it then fabulous but I thoroughly enjoy making meals [Ask my friends…Im in charge of the menu planning on holidays because I LOVE it!]
