It's the day after the day after Christmas. It's the in between time of year. The presents are unwrapped but the new year's resolutions yet to be made. While the official festivities are over, you can't quite go back to your regular bowl of muesli just yet. So here's the in between of the breakfasts - quite a bit more special than cereal or toast but not so elaborate it requires multiple bowls, cooking coordination or fancy ingredients. And once it's made, all that's required over the next few days is slicing it up and popping it into the toaster.
It rained in Sydney on Christmas Day this year. I love the rain so that suited me fine. But it meant that the bag of limes I had bought in anticipation of gin and tonics languished while long sleeves were donned and wine was poured. The sun is out now but not before I swiped one to make this for the days ahead. Despite the name, this loaf is somewhere in between itself - not quite bread, not quite cake. But definitively delicious.
