this is such a great recipe to make ahead of time and pop into the oven the next morning. i usually will cut the bread up and let it sit out, uncovered, overnight, so it can get stale more. i’ll mix up the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients separately and won’t pour the wet mixture onto the bread until the next morning because i don’t want the bread to get too soggy.

it smells so good too while it’s baking in the oven ! warm goodness simmering in the oven on a cold november morning… yummm !
