Sweet Dessert Bread made with mead and cooked in a coffee can

We decided to take on r/mead‘s recent fad of making bread from mead/mead byproducts. We decided for part one of this mead bread series, we’d take on SWEET bread. This bread is steamed in a coffee can over the stove, and could likely be adapted for muffins as well! Also check out our mead sourdough video!
