This Spice & Herb French Braid infused with a myriad of spices and herbs is a flavorful addition to your breakfast or perfect to enjoy with a hearty bowl of soup or a green salad!
It’s that time again….Bread Bakers. As soon as the theme of Braided Breads was announced, I decided immediately to do a basic French bread flavored up with spices and herbs. I was just going to do a basic 3 strand braid, which I’ve done before in breads like:
Other Braided Breads
…but that all changed after watching a You Tube video demonstrating how to braid breads up to 9 strands. It’s actually a lot easier than you think. I am not the most artistic of bakers. If I was able to manage it, you certainly can!!!
IN THE MAKING
With this bread’s mosaic of spices and herbs, there is no flavor that dominates. In stead, subtle notes of the different spices and herbs create an incredibly flavorful bread that needs nothing more than some salted butter. Jam or cheese would overpower the gentle notes in the bread.
Perfect to serve with a cup of tea!
