Effortless Cream Cheese Honey comb Bread

Effortless Cream Cheese Honeycomb Bread

I love it when a recipe is effortless, especially in the month of Ramadan, when it gets tiring to toil in the kitchen to make dishes that will be served to break your fast with. Usually, if we have a savory snack on the table, I always like to have a sweet snack by the side too, so that I don't fee the urge to binge on foodstuff like chocolates,etc.

Our family loves honeycomb bread, but little do I have the patience to knead, make balls and allow them to rise, especially when fasting! I was thinking of ways in which honeycomb bread could be recreated at home using basic ingredients available at home, and of course kept in mind that it shouldn't be time consuming nor oily nor uses oven.

Ta daa! Comes SAMOON* to the rescue! (*a long sandwich bread, commonly found in supermarket stores). This hack is such a life saver! It's like a last-minute thing that you can get done in jiffy, yet so addictive and delicious. The recipe uses only honey, which a natural sweetener, so again, it is definitely healthier. 

I love the combination of egg, cheese and honey, which is an acquired taste of the traditional Emirati snack called Regag from all these years living in Dubai. So that's when this honeycomb bread hack struck me. I loved everything about this recipe, except that it has a small drawback, ie, if you consume them immediately you don't get any eggy smell, but if you are planning to have it after a while, I would recommend you to use vanilla essence/ cardamom powder in the egg mixture if you do not want the eggy smell. 

My misters reaction when he had this for the first time made my heart was so full. He was so happy and asked why I never shared this recipe on my blog. So here you go guys! It's super easy too. Hub said that they were melt in the mouth good, so you can imagine how much of a keeper this recipe is! Alhamdulilah!

Let's make these delicious bItes.
