In Holland I ate one of the most delicious breads. I think it's called Sugarbread. It's a rich loaf marbled with caramelized sugar and butter.
Has anyone had it?
Any good recipes for it out there?

Maybe it was Morovian sugar cake? Yeasted, made with a potato, crunchy cinnamon sugar topping? I've never seen it marbled but maybe the pastry chef in Holland took liberties. I make a version that Gourmet published in the 90s. It's in their book "Gourmet Sweets."
Nope, that sounds good but definitely not what I'm looking for. Thanks :)

Suikerbrood in Dutch. I've never made it myself, but here's one recipe from the Dutch tourism site http://www.holland.com...
That looks right! The recipe is lacking though. It doesn't address the swirl in the preparation but it says to put it in the loaf pan seam down. Now that I have the correct spelling (thank you for that!) I'll continue my search.
OK, with Chris' help I've found a plethora of Suikerbrood recipes. There are huge differences in the recipes so I'll just have to test a few ... and put on a few pounds I guess.
I'll upload a recipe once it's perfect. Promise!
