Seasonal bread

In Germany Christmas calendars are a really popular thing. They make the 24 days waiting for Christmas easier with little presents or chocolate, its time-consuming work to make these things but a delight to open a little surprise every day. So naturally, I love it! Especially when your boyfriend gives you a coupon in one of the little packages for making you seasonal bread with cranberries, walnuts and rosemary for breakfast! So thank you boyfriend and thank you JamieOliver for the lovely recipe!
And here is a cozy playlist to accompany you seasonal bread baking!


250g rye flour
250g white flour
7g dry yeast
2 tbsp. sunflower oil
2 tbsp. runny honey
5 rosemary twigs, needles chopped (or 2 tsp. dried ones)
300ml warm water
75g roughly chopped walnuts
75g dried cranberries

(The boy didn’t found it to be necessary to make a picture of the ingredients, so only reading them for this post J) First mix the dry ingredients (not the walnuts and cranberries), then pour in the oil, honey and water and knead until dough is elastic. Form into a ball and let rise for an hour covered with a kitchen towel at a warm place.  

Only than knead in the cranberries and walnuts, form into the shape you like and let rise another 30 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes together with a cup of water in a 200°C oven. You know when it’s done, when you knock on its bottom side and it sounds hollow! This bread is so yummy, that salted butter is completely sufficient to eat with it, although some sharp cheese would be wonderful too. Oh what a wonderful seasonal breakfast!
