Sometime you want what you want, when you want it. This is a result of wanting to clean out a fridge containing a bag of carrots, fighting valiantly for their lives. The week's groceries seemed to be a bit heavy on the veggies, and the poor little guys were rescued from certain demise in the back of the crisper. This is a twist on a recipe from Ina Garten found here. This bread is moist, dense and full of flavor, with a craggy crumbly sugared top perfect for that essential pat of butter.
