Raspberry Bread
















Raspberries. Is there anything not to love about them? Sweet, light, and oh so delicious, these little beauties are perfect in any jam, a bowl of cold milk and sugar, or straight off the bush!

For me, raspberries have always been a huge part of my life. Growing up in northern Utah, our backyard was full of big, ripe raspberry bushes. I can still remember those cool summer evenings, running around and playing tag as kids in the backyard, then gorging ourselves after each game with fresh raspberries, picked right off the vine. Now, each time I enjoy one, my mind is transformed back to those magical nights.

Today's recipe is my attempt to squeeze the last few days out of summer before fall officially hits. Using our always tasty Freeze Dried Raspberries, along with our impressive Alta Artisan Bread Flour, I've created a sweet, rich, and very delicious bread loaf that is sure to keep those summer nights alive in your home. Grab your apron, it's time for Raspberry Bread!

Ingredients:
1 cup Sugar
