Birthday Cake Bread 🎂

inspired meals sweet treats Aug 30, 2021

Today I turn 46 years young. Some people roll their eyes when I say that I love getting older...but I really do! Sure I have a few more little laugh lines than last year, but who cares?! 


With every outer line comes tremendous inner growth and with each passing year:

  • My “triple A-Virgo" personality softens a bit.
  • I learn from my mistakes and embrace them as stepping stones for growth.
  • I shift my inner compass to those things that really matter in life: joy, peace, family, friends, and helping others.
  • I'm able to let go of those pesky little things that don't.


This weekend I enjoyed savored a Mitchell’s ice cream sundae with all the trimmings: salted caramel pecan ice cream, peanut butter sauce, whipped cream, and chocolate shavings. 


So yes, I absolutely treat myself, with zero guilt. My rule is:
If I’m going to do it up, I must do it without regret... otherwise I don’t do it. 


With that being said, I take even greater pleasure in preparing recipes that use more wholesome ingredients. Here’s a lovely recipe for Birthday Cake Bread that I made in honor of my special day. A lightly sweetened bread with dye-free rainbow sprinkles baked inside. Spread a little Kerrygold butter on top and enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea. 


This recipe freezes really well. Slice the bread into individual servings and store in a freezer bag. Birthday or no birthday, when you have something to celebrate, defrost a slice at room temperature and enjoy! 


Causes for celebration (in case you need one):

  • Waking up to a brand new day
  • Your eyes
  • A roof over your head
  • Your beating heart
  • Good friends
  • Family 
  • The unconditional love of a pet
  • Being YOU!
