This month’s theme for The Food Exchange was breakfast bakes. Breakfast is probably my favourite meal of the day and one of the things I miss about living in England is meeting friends for breakfast. Yes, I do it here too but I can’t completely get on board with cheese and cold meat for breakfast! I miss poached eggs on toast, bacon sandwiches, baked beans, eggs, pancakes!
Having said all that, there are some amazing German breakfast bakes which I love. Such as Rosinenschnecke (which directly translates as raisin snails!) and Nusszopf (nut plait). One of my other favourite breakfast bakes is Rosinen Brötchen (raisin rolls).
When I worked at the bakery making Rosinen Brötchen was one of my jobs. It was also my breakfast of choice while working there too! Having said that I have never made them at home, so I was excited when Greta sent me this challenge.
These bread rolls are really soft, white bread rolls which are enriched with butter and an egg and raisins throughout the dough. I find this best when they are warm out of the oven and don’t think they need anything with them. Tim is always pleased when I make something savoury or a bread bake, so he was really happy with this months challenge too! Thanks for the suggestion Greta!
Make sure you head over to Greta’s blog to see her English breakfast bake! As always, if you have any suggestions on what you would like to see us bake please let us know!
