Widmer Brothers Sunrise Drifter Morning Bread

Hello my lovely readers!!!  If you are curious. YES!   I am still celebrating Oregon Craft Beer Month AND I am still cooking with the FABULOUS Widmer Brothers Beers!  I am so inspired that my home is overflowing with baked goods!  I had done 2 savory breads……it was time to take a step over to the sweet side of life…..

I loved making this bread.  I just played with the standard bread to made it more breakfast-y!  I added brown sugar, nuts, and glazed it over – what a fun recipe!

She’s a beauty, huh? She was gorgeous even before the glaze!!

Now…..for the recipe!
