Yesterday, the kids woke up to some golden chocolate coins left by the Wise Men and during our morning circle time, we sang We Three Kings, of course. I was inspired by this post of Karen Edmisten's to try making King's Bread. I didn't use her recipe, as good as it looked. Instead, I used the recipe for Panetonne from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, except that I braided it together and twisted it into a crown shape. When it was baked and cooled, I made a simple glaze of orange juice, lemon extract and powdered sugar and slathered the bread in it.
Needless to say, it was well received.
