This awesome bread while not quite cakey -it can be toasted just like a regular sliced bread- is still also not quite as bready as a standard yeast bread. I like the versatility of being able to toast it for sandwiches or eat it untoasted as a snack. The original(non lemon) version is served at Bill Grainger's restaurant in Sydney, Australia. This version is tweaked with the added lemon and comes to us from Baking Bites. Enjoy!
