During busy times I have kind of a ritual to calm down and remember the worth of the true pleasures in life:
I am baking bread. Today:
Rosemary Olive Oil Bread
Easy, because I own a Kitchen Aid. You just have to put all the „dry“ ingredients into the mixing bowl, start your Kitchen Aid, add the „wet“ ingredients, close the bowl with the plastic lid and wait for about 2 hours, done.
I have so much Rosemary in my garden and wanted to try something different than the usual Focaccia, and was lucky enough to remember a recipe by the Food-Blog A Hint of Honey who writes about herself:
It is my goal to use the freshest and most natural ingredients possible. I try to avoid all forms of processed foods and prefer to buy local and in season (it’s cheaper too!!). I primarily use organic and all-natural foods. The benefits they provide to your body and the environment are worth the extra cost.
You will find the recipe on her blog, but here are the INGREDIENTS, I used (which vary a bit):
- 1 cup warm water (100 F)
- 1 tbsp. cane sugar
- 1 package dry yeast
- 2 tsp. Hibiskus salt
- 2 tbsp. fresh rosemary, chopped
- 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
- a hint of freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tbsp. NOAN olive oil
- 1 cup white whole wheat flour
- 1 cup spelt flour
- 1 tbsp. flax seeds (for sprinkling on top of the dough)
Doesn’t the bread look simply delicious on the wooden board?
