Blackberry Fest Bread - Proposed Official Dessert of Elma Washington
|Naomi and her handmade braided sweet bread|
I remember when Elma had its Slug Festival. Then it was changed to the Blackberry Festival, and now it looks like that has been changed to the Outlaw Festival. After careful thought, I realized that both 'slugs'and óutlaws' are not good for the image of poor little Elma. Slugs are disgusting, and we certainly do not want to glorify criminals or outlaws.
I decided to make my own contribution to Elma Washington by inventing a special pastry to be served during their yearly late summer festival. I am going to ask the City of Elma to consider making this dessert the Official Dessert of Elma Washington. I would like to introduce you to Blackberry Fest Bread. This is a dessert that I invented myself. If it is made perfectly, it is a delicious and attractive recipe that people will love both looking at....and eating.
