There are not many things that can beat the whole grain bread, unless it's 8 delicious little whole grain breadrolls ;-) These are perfect for breakfast, and you can easily prepare and bake them in one evening, for e.g. Sunday breakfast! :-)
My fool-proof recipe will be a great fun, and a good addition to your baking arsenal.
I always wanted to make these, and finally got the guts — oh boy, I wasn't really prepared for the amount of nitty-gritty with making these. I started with original German recipe that called for 500g of almonds, but that ended up being 2 full baking sheets and lots of sneaky snacking between steps ;-) But the result is good, and these cookies are worth the effort.
I didn't plan to make this cake at all, what I did plan was apple tart with apricot jelly... Well, sometimes I just change my mind, especially while experimenting in the kitchen :-) The result is interesting, refreshing and citrusy! :-) If you don't like the strong orange aroma, you can replace them with any soft and sweet fruit: peaches, pears, and apricots should do fine!
One thing that I like about living in Germany is that during the Christmas time, locals cook and bake many delicious local dishes — one of them is Vanille-Kipferl, also known in other countries as Italian cornetti, French crossaints, or Polish rogaliki. But however you call them, they are basically very crispy cookies covered with vanilla sugar. And for this simplicity I absolutely love them :-)
There's something really personal about making bread — you cannot make it well, unless you care deeply and commit lots of attention. While white breads are all the rage, from time to time it's nice to enjoy a more substantial, heavier bread and this whole grain wheat bread recipe delivers beautiful, soft and moist bread ideal both for sweet toppings (I personally like strawberry or plum jam) and salty ones (cheese, ricotta or cottage cheese). It's also packing quite a lot of fiber, which is healthy and will keep you full for longer time with less of the bread itself!
