Almond Joy Bread

Jerri Thomas


I came up with this recipe while trying to use up buttermilk which I don't usually keep on hand...but with the way my family loved this bread, buttermilk may become a pantry staple! Its a dense, sweet bread perfect for holiday gatherings and get togethers. I hope you enjoy it.
