Holiday Breads

Hi people, I have been baking a few Holiday Breads here, just sharing the images, they all turned out really good. I am taking these to office and my team loved them all.

I did a google search and I am in love with the concept! So simple and beautiful! The recipes I found do NOT mention cardamom but I think it would be a wonderful addition.

Here is a good site:

Hi, thanks for appreciating, I have used the Brioche recipe from the Artisan Bread in 5 Minute new edition. Here is the complete guideline as to how to make them. However the authors presented it as Wreathe bread whereas  this shape is traditional Danish and Scandinavian Kringle.http://www.artisanbreadinfive.com/2014/12/12/cinnamon-brioche-wreath-and-a-book-giveaway

Here goes Artos the Greek Celebration Bread recipe from BBA by Peter Reinhart. I have added figs, toasted walnuts, and mixed currants in the Artos dough and braided it. The finished dough is glazed with melted sugar and orange extract.

Any of these would make a wonderful gift. It's so true that we eat first with our eyes.

Happy Holidays!
