Crunchy Raspberry Bread

A few weeks ago, I tried my hand at making bread for the first time. It was the delicious Nicky D Cooks Spicy Zucchini Bread. So good! Using Nicky’s recipe as a base, I created this amazing Crunchy Raspberry Bread featuring Sugar In The Raw.

Basically, I swapped out the zucchini, cinnamon and nutmeg for fresh raspberries… and Sugar In The Raw sprinkled on the top.

It took me a few attempts to get the recipe right, but when I finally did… I loved it! Since then, I’ve made it two more times for Clint and I to enjoy.
