I love bread, but when my mum gave me this recipe and I read it takes 10 days to make, I was just going to go home and throw it away. But lucky for me she gave me some of the bread along with the recipe and after I tasted it, I had to make it. It is so unhealthy, but so good. Totally worth the 10 days it sits on the couter staring at you.
