Rosemary & Cinnamon

I used the last of my adapted Peasant Loaf recipe from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. I made some fresh rosemary & oil breadsticks. I was hoping the rosemary would stick to the olive oil that I brushed on, but only the sea salt remained. They still recieved the highest praise from my daughter Claire who hums like a bumblebee whenever she eats something she loves :o)

It didn't go as far as the Boule recipe due to the dough not rising as much but it was yummy and where else in the world can you find whole grain Cinnamon Swirls?! ...that makes up for all the icing, doesn't it???

Would you like to join me for tea, cinnamon swirls & sewing!

Enjoy your afternoon tea & quilted crafts :o)


  1. Would love to join you but I'm on the other side of the world, your pastry seems great!

  2. yes please. I'll be there in, um, well, it'll take me a while - but keep that tea warm for me!!!!

  3. Your pics look so delicious! I need to get a copy of that book....love the idea of bread sticks.

  4. Yes please, me too! Pretty please let me know when your house tape measures are ready (haven't I been so patient?).
    ta, Krista

  5. I would love to! I may bring the red currant&mint compote. *^v^*

  6. You can find the basic bread recipe from "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day", online here. I have heard that the sweeter Challah dough is even better for cinamon buns but I haven't tried it yet.

    1. Roll out the dough into a large rectangle.
    2. Spread on butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg & mace.
    3. Roll into a long log and cut into slices. Place in pan with space between and let rise for about an hour.
    4. Bake for about 35 minutes at 350F.

    1/2 cup (4oz) cream cheese
    1/4 cup butter
    1/2 tsp vanilla
    1 cup icing sugar

  7. Yes, I would, too. I hope you still have something nice ..... And I try to fly as I am a bit far.... Yummmm

  8. Yes, I would love to join you for some sweet treats! I just found your blog and I love it! I love your banner too btw.

  9. Wellcome in blogland! It's nice to see you and your wonderful creations here.

  10. Oh, Laurraine! I didn't realize you had finally got yourself a blog. I have always wondered why you of all (who makes so many beautiful things) didn't have a blog. And then you went and got one while I was away from Blogworld :-) So happy to se you here. Look forward to catch up with the posts you have written since you began blogging this summer
