Winter Spice Bread With Nutmeg Icing {soaked, gluten free, dairy free, nut free, corn free}

Winter spice bread is a gluten free sweet bread filled with spice and topped with a delicious nutmeg icing.Winter Spice Bread With Nutmeg Icing Soaked Gluten Free Dairy Free Nut Free Corn Free || Homemade Dutch Apple PieI love having sweet breads on hand.  They make great snacks or breakfasts.  I also love them with a big bowl of nourishing soup.

In the winter I don’t do as many fruity breads.  I gravitate towards warming foods with a hint of spice.

So I created this winter spice bread.  It has a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon for flavor.  You could also add mini chocolate chips for extra sweetness.

I love that this winter spice bread is soaked for easier digestion.  It also makes two loaves.  So it lasts us a few days.  One of them could go to the freezer…but our second loaf usually doesn’t make it.Winter Spice Bread With Nutmeg Icing Soaked Gluten Free Dairy Free Nut Free Corn Free || Homemade Dutch Apple Pie

Just for an extra bit of flavor I created a nutmeg icing.  You can top the whole loaf of winter spice bread with the icing or drizzle it on individual pieces.  The icing soaks in and creates a rich, gooey treat.  It’s almost like eating cake!

My kids really enjoyed this bread.  The whole family did!

Whether you want a special breakfast or the perfect side for your soup, winter spice bread is just what you need.

If you like a little more rise in your bread you can use baking powder.  But if you are corn free the baking soda/cream of tartar combination works well.  Beating the egg whites separately and folding them into the batter will also make the bread less dense.Winter Spice Bread With Nutmeg Icing Soaked Gluten Free Dairy Free Nut Free Corn Free || Homemade Dutch Apple Pie

The great thing about a soaked bread is that you can prepare half of it one day and finish it the next.  Breaking it up into shorter steps really makes baking bread easy!  I soak my flour one day and then get the bread in the oven quickly the next morning.

Winter spice bread is a perfect treat all winter long.  Make a big batch so you can stock your freezer.Winter Spice Bread With Nutmeg Icing Soaked Gluten Free Dairy Free Nut Free Corn Free || Homemade Dutch Apple Pie
