Holiday Wreath Bread

Pin It Now!

When I was uploading images to tastespotter.com yesterday, I came across pictures of a Holiday Wreath Bread and thought that it'd be a lovely addition to the list of finger foods I'm preparing for a party I'm having on Friday.

As I don't have the 'magic' no-kneed bread dough always ready in my fridge, I used the recipe for bread dough from my Olive and Parmesan Bread. Once it had risen for the first time, I divided it into three equal parts and followed the instructions given on the Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day blog, to make three bread wreaths.

It was really easy, as promised, and looks wonderful. I just wished I could break a piece off right now and eat it, rather than putting it in the freezer for Friday.

That bread will be a beautiful part of your meal on Friday. It looks so festive as well without being overdone. I love the idea.

Wow that look so beautiful.

Veronica said...

oh wow, that does look gorgeous! And I *do* always have 5-minute dough hanging around in my fridge :-)

The "Artisan" method really is good; I haven't bought any bread since I discovered it early this year, and I'm now confident enough to play around with different flours. It's much better than that other no-knead method that involves 17 hours' rising ,and cooking it in a pot.

Beautiful - funny how the best ideas are often quite simple

So pretty, and practical too. We almost always tear our bread loaves anyway. What nice crusty portions this would make. Thanks for sharing!
