Goji - Mulberry Sweet Bread
A delicious, healthy sweet bread ideal for breakfast, with an afternoon cup of tea, or tied up with a little ribbon and given as a gift (hostess or otherwise). Baked the night before, it slices up nicely the next day and gives the flavors a chance to meld. Add a few chopped nuts to add some protein.
