Great Harvest Bread Company

About a year ago we stumbled upon a store/bakery/restaurant called Great Harvest Bread Company.

The kids were instantly hooked being that there were FREE bread samples of delicious fresh bread.

The location of the store was totally out of the way so we never returned. Fast forward to a recent date when I decided we'd see if we could find a location closer to our home - and we did.

We consumed some yummy bread samples, purchased a ginormous cinnamon roll/bun to share and then bought the bread above. It was still warm!

I think it was called Apple Crunch...bits of yummy apple inside a sweet (but not overly so) dough sprinkled with a sugarish topping. It was wonderful!

The shape of the bread was unique which also helped in making the decision of which bread to buy.

The bread is not cheap. At least not cheap if you are used to making your own bread or buying it at Aldi...I think it was about $5.00. It was gone in no time! Kids loved it too of course.

Sounds yummy!
I think Like Merchant Ships had a post recently where she linked to another site that had recipes/tricks for getting artisan style bread at home. Let me know if you can't find it and are interested.

It wouldn't be difficult to get that desired shape...before baking make a round loaf, slice into it and separate the pieces and then bake it. Looks so delicious!
