Seriously. Let’s get crazy and throw some dragon fruit, orange juice, dates, cranberries and coriander into a sweet roll bread and drizzle some buttercream icing on it. Hallelujah.
What could be better than apricots soaked in ginger beer? I’ll tell you what… nuthin. This recipe rocks – I know because my wife Becca gave it her “I could eat another slice” seal of approval!
My son, Sawyer, doesn’t like ‘bits’ in bread. Anything with seeds, nuts, flecks of onion, olives, and so on – he won’t touch. So, this is pretty much the anti-Sawyer bread, made with nine different seeds.
The glaze (or syrup as Mom calls it) is the secret weapon of this recipe. It seeps into the spirals and turns into actual cocaine. Not really…
Simple thoughts… I think I’m in love with coriander.
Despite a few unexpected ingredients, this is a pretty standard American-style pumpernickel recipe – the coffee, coffee flour, and chocolate provide the pumpernickel overtones.
Becca and I have amassed a store of canned beans to make a doomsday prepper proud. Nice to have a can of organic black lentils on hand when you need them!
Is it fair to judge a bread on the quality of toast it makes? On this merit alone, you should drop everything and make this delicious bread. Woo!
A rich, complex, savory, loaf that’s two parts fancy, one part rustic, and may just be the best invention since… well, you know.
I purchased a bread cloche the other day. I feel like a bread baking super hero. Now I can get crispy crusts and airy crumbs like French boulangers – and I don’t have to fly to France to do it.
