More About This Recipe
Any way you slice it, the cheesy bread is bursting with love.
I remember the first time I saw a picture of a cake that was cut to reveal a heart inside – it was like magic!
Baffled by what I saw, I had to find out how the baker made the cake. I was surprised to find out just how easy it is. Since then I've done it myself many times. Up until today, I've only attempted this technique with sweets, but wanted to see if it was just as easy to make a loaf of cheese bread with a hidden treasure inside. I'm happy to report that it is!
This bread will be so much fun to share with loved ones. You can wrap up entire loaves, tie them with a bow, and give them out as gifts. The recipients will be totally surprised when they cut their first slice to reveal a bright pink heart (and more importantly, they'll know they are loved).
You can slice up the loaves and make toast on Valentine's Day morning, or serve it alongside a romantic dinner. You can even make sandwiches to send to school with your kids. I imagine being a child opening my lunch box and finding pink hearts on sandwich bread. I'm pretty sure that after letting out a little squeal of excitement, that I would proudly show it to everyone at the table before taking my first bite. (And finding this fun surprise would surely help make up for not getting a special Valentine's Day card from that boy I'd been crushing on all year!)
Plus, I love good bread. Even though it is often just a side note to a nice meal, it can be something special. This bread bakes up with a fluffy soft interior surrounded by a crunchy cheese crust. It's fantastic warm right out of the oven, great toasted with melted butter on top, and even better with meat sandwiched in between two slices. The best part is that it is so easy to make. Even with the addition of the heart pieces made to stuff inside, you'll have this bread in the oven in about 20 minutes.
Grab some butter and enjoy!
