How to make the sugar bread


After a fabulous exchange market, you’ve decided to recreate the magic, the Frisian magic that’s called sugar bread! We understand you, so here’s the recipe.


Add the lukewarm milk & ginger sap to the yeast & wait for a few minutes. Mix the flour, salt, cinnamon and slowly add the lukewarm yeast mixture. Add the melted (but cooled) butter and eggs to the yeast dough and mix. Let the dough rise for an hour in a warm place. Add the sugar lumps and mould the dough to fit the baking pan. The baking pan should be thickly covered in butter and sugar when you put in the dough. Let the dough rise for another half an hour in the baking pan. Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown at 200 degrees Celsius. Enjoy!
