Nibbles and Narratives

Yeah, I've fallen off my "Narrative" band wagon but I've already promised myself that I will pick back up where I left off this coming week.  In the meantime, I made something super delicious for Pokey's birthday yesterday... with a bit of help from Hobbit.  You see, Pokey doesn't like cake or sweets really so this year, we made him some Birthday Bread instead.  It was most delicious Sparkly Streusel bread and I'm here to share it with you.
We used purple on our bread and it was fabulous!


For Streusel -
  1. 2 Tbsp sugar
  2. 1 tsp cinnamon
  3. 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  4. 2 Tbsp softened butter
  5. 3 Tbsp edible glitter
For Bread -
  1. 2 eggs
  2. 2 cups flour (all purpose is what I use)
  3. 1 cup sugar
  4. 4 tsp baking powder
  5. 2 tsp cinnamon
  6. 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  7. 1/2 tsp salt
  8. 1 cup buttermilk
  9. 1/3 cup oil
  10. 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  1. Preheat your oven to 350*F and grease the bottom of your loaf pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together all the bread ingredients.  Be sure to get out all the lumps. I prefer to add the flour last and do it a little at a time to ensure that it's all mixed well.  Set it to the side
  3. Take all your streusel ingredients and mash them together with a fork in a separate small bowl.  This should make a since crumbly consistency - like if you were making a graham cracker crust.
  4. Pour half of your batter into the loaf pan and even out.
  5. Sprinkle and gently spread half of the streusel crumble on top of the batter.
  6. Add remaining batter and top with remaining streusel.
  7. Sprinkle your edible glitter on top - use a generous amount to cover the entire top of the bread.
  8. Bake in the oven for 40 - 50 minutes or until your toothpick comes out clean from the center.
  9. Let it cool for 15 minutes in the pan and the pop the loaf out to complete cooling on your wire rack.
Enjoy this tasty treat for breakfast, snack or dessert.  It's sure to be a family favorite and it's a ton of fun!


  1. That sounds really delicious! And I love the addition of edible glitter. That stuff is awesome

    1. It melts in your mouth, it's so moist.. and the edible glitter adds just the right touch of fun without altering the taste one bit.
