Blackberry Lemon Pull Apart Loaf

The mornings grow longer, coaxing us to start our days early. Bright rays poke through windows, slowly sweeping away the previous night’s waning darkness. The pungent tang of yeast bites at tired nostrils as busy hands work a dough into a ball. A towel is draped gently over the growing dough and time is left to do its thing.

Minutes pass by, the morning now brighter, and hands go back to work. This time they take a delicate approach, carefully rolling out, slicing, shaping, spreading, dusting and stacking. Layers of dough, lemony sugar and tart blackberry jam build in the heavy, old loaf pan. The towel is brought back and time is again the last man left working in the flour-dusted kitchen.

A wave of heat washes over a face as the pan is slid into the oven. Minutes are counted. Beautiful aromas float around the kitchen. Plates are stacked and forks found.
