Rosemary Raisins Bread Recipe – Adapted From Laura Calder, French Food at Home

Nano nano, I am alien from outer space.....ha ha ha!
This recipe is adapted from the one that I learned from watching Laura Calder, French Food at Home show in AFC (Asian Food Channel). In the original recipe, she uses Olive but I do not have this in hand so I improvised by using raisins instead. With all the cuts in the dough, the bread is supposed to look like a leaf but the olive bread that Laura made in her show looks very much nicer than the one I made above. LOL! Here is the recipe.

Flour, 3 cups
Olive oil, 2 table spoons
Sugar, 2 table spoons
Yeast, 1 teaspoon
Egg, 2 pcs
Salt, 1 teaspoon
Rosemary, 1 tablespoon
Raisins (or olive), ½ cup

Mix flour, sugar, yeast and salt evenly. Pour eggs and olive oil in the middle of the flour. Mix well and knead the dough. Add a little water if it is too dry. Leave the dough aside for the yeast to do its’ work! After around 2 hours, give the dough a punch.....hiyaaa! Add rosemary and raisins to the dough. Mix well. Flatten the dough into a leaf shape and cut the sides using a sharp knife. Brush the top of the bread with eggs. Bake the bread in preheated oven at 200 Dec C for around 15 to 20 minutes.

Ha ha ha! A good one! This looks great with the raisins but I bet the olives would be great also. Yum!

Laura Calder is Canadian, we get her show here too! I guess if you use raisins, the bread is sweet rather than savoury...good idea
