Few things are more magical than the mix between bread and Christmas. It’s magical to make bread and it gets even more impressive if it’s in the shape of a Christmas bread wreath with spices, walnuts and raisins. I made this recipe because it’s one of the recipes that you guys asked from me on Instagram when I asked what you wanted to learn for Christmas. So mission accomplished ;)….
Is there anything nicer than the smell of fresh bread? Now imagine that mixed with that there’s the incredible smell of cinnamon… Just so perfect. This bread dough you can also use to make a regular loaf of bread of you can even braid it and do pull apart bread. It’s the perfect recipe to vary.
These grissini or breadsticks are a favourite of mine. For halloween I made them a bit thicker and added black sesame seeds as eyes to resemble cute snakes :). The perfect halloween snack if you ask me! And if you want to make them as regular grissini just make them thinner and that’s it ;).
Flatbread is one of my favourite breads because it’s thin, light, nicely toasted and you can top it with anything: from something simple as olive oil and sea salt to something more complex like what we’re doing today in the recipe. It’s super simple to make and it’s even a great bread for sandwiches if you fold it in half….
I haven’t yet met someone who doesn’t like a nice and moist loaf. This recipe is incredibly tasty and the cinnamon sugar in between really makes it pop. It’s soft, sweet, looks adorable, and really melts in your mouth. It’s perfect for an afternoon tea, or breakfast, or… well, just any time you’re hungry really! I love the way the cinnamon swirl looks when you cut into it….
Avocado is one of my favourite ingredients. Not only is it soft and creamy, but it also has an incredible flavour that lets itself be combined with others. In this case, I breaded them with panko (a super crunchy japanese breadcrumb) and cooked them in the oven. You can also fry them ;). As a dip I made a homemade honey mustard (takes literally 2min) and you can use it not only as a dip but also as a dressing, for sandwiches and wraps….
Bread… what an amazing invention. That smell of bread that just came out the oven is completely irresistible. Given that right now I’m in Dublin, I thought it was apropiate to share this recipe with you. It’s soooo easy! It doesn’t even need yeast; it’s actually called soda bread because it uses bicarbonate of soda and baking powder. It’s more compact than a yeasted bread but it’s completely exquisite. I love to toast it and put some butter on it… YUM! As always, it’s my version of the recipe with some changes I like in my baked goods, like the parmesan cheese. You can also put raisins instead or nuts if you want it on the sweet side….
I’ve been wanting to do a banana bread for you guys for a while now, and I finally got around to make it. I love it because the fact that it has banana pulp inside makes it really moist, and also the fact that I cook them in butter first makes the banana extra sweet. It’s perfect for your daily cup of coffee or tea and the walnuts really help to give a nice crunch that I love to have in almost everything I cook. I hope you like it :)…
