Oh! For a Trini Sweetbread and a Trini Christmas
This is the sweetbread I grew up eating. Most of the women in my family made some type of bread on the weekends and much more for the holidays, this particular sweetbread was taught to me by my next door Barbadian neighbor who I loved dearly, she has since passed away, her name was Mrs Claudine Theodore affectionately called Miss Claudine, may she rest in peace.
My recipe is a mix of Trini and Bajan put together, this one is without the coconut filling.
This time of the year bring back so many memories of my childhood on the islands of Trinidad.
In Trinidad our tradition around Christmas time is to redecorate our home, painting walls, vanishing floors, new carpeting, sewing curtains etc! come Christmas morning everything has to be new, even your sleep clothes, pajamas, slippers etc! ( that’s for another post)
Really amazing time of the year.
