My boy is a great fan of red bean, anything stuff with this, he happily devoured them. Oh gosh, he can easily eat a loaf of this red bean swirl bread at one sitting!
This recipe yields a decent loaf, it is stuffed with red bean (use store bought) but you are free to substitute the filling with savory or others according to your taste. Since it is such a hit at my home, I thought I would share this recipe so you could also enjoy this incredible bread as much as we did.
