Cañadas de Azúcar – for Canada Day
Hello everyone, and Happy Canada / Happy Cañada Day!
This is a Spanish bread called Cañadas de Azúcar, baked for today,Canada’s national holiday.
I can’t remember where I first read about this bread – liking the name, I wanted to bake Cañadas for Canada Day :^)
I searched online and found a blog entry about this bread here.
Cañada translates to “gulley” or “ravine”, and Azúcar means sugar; so this is a good name for this flatbread,
with its dimpled surface and sugared topping!
In tribute to Canada’s maple trees, I used maple syrup and maple sugar
in my version.
…summertime maple leaf
Cañadas before baking, partway through the bake (removed from oven to brush on butter/olive oil and sprinkle with maple sugar), then returned to oven for a little bit longer to finish:
A lovely 'hint of maple' bite to have with morning coffee :^)
...couldn't have just one!
There have been pretty flowers blooming, so for our national holidays, here are some blooms...
Red and white for Canada
Red, white and blue, for the American TFL’ers about to celebrate the Fourth!
And how about some fireworks for this time of year? The stamens on these flowers seemed to display ‘fireworks’ so I’m including these photos as part of my holiday wishes :^)
Happy baking, and happy holidays, everyone!
