         Bread baking is a form of art and there are many versions of bread like salt, sweet, savoury and different shapes too. Spring and springtime refers to the season and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and re growth.  Subtropical and tropical areas have climates better described in terms of other seasons dry or wet, monsoonal or cyclonic……………

                  This bread recipe inspired me from kingarthurflour site where I contribute my recipes too. Lovely, sweet and yummy bread with topping. I made it eggless and replaced jaggery for sugar for healthy version.In original recipe they haven't stuffed anything in the bread but I stuffed chocolates to make interesting for kids. I baked this bread in my pressure cooker.  I never baked a bread in cooker tried for the first time and I got impressive results too…………………..
