Stacey Snack's Rustic Rosemary Bread
When I saw the January bread challenge here: http://www.vingle.net/posts/661278-January-Baking-Fun-Share-Your-Favorite-Bread, I knew I had to share this! It was posted on Stacey's blog on my birthday, and it's got to be healthier than birthday cake, right? I've made it several times, and it's always delicious. Because it's a quick bread, it's a little denser than a yeasted bread, but it's wonderful with a bowl of soup, or just toasted by itself! Ingredients: 3/4 cup of whole wheat bread flour 1 1/4 cup of all purpose flour 1/2 tsp baking soda 1/3 cup of whole almonds, chopped 1/3 cup of raisins or currants 3 stems of fresh rosemary, leaves removed 1/2 tsp sea salt 3 tbsp sugar (optional) 3/4 cup + 1 tbsp buttermilk Directions: Preheat the oven to 400F. Place an enamel Dutch oven or commercial baking sheet lined w/ parchment paper in the oven to heat. (Be careful, the pot or pan will be HOT). Mix the dry ingredients w/ the nuts, raisins and rosemary needles. Add in the buttermilk last. The dough will be sticky. Using wet hands, form the dough into a big round lump. Score an X on top. Place the lump of dough in the paper lined pot, or paper lined preheated baking sheet (whichever you are using), and bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes.

This bread looks like something my sister would be obsessed with. She loves baking bread almost as much as she loves anything with rosemary.
