I don’t really eat breakfast during the week; I grab a few cookies, I crunch them while I’m getting ready and I swallow them quickly and greedily – drinking a glass of orange juice, having one foot already out of the front door.
The weekend is different! The weekend’s breakfast is a ritual, it’s a moment to share with the people you love or to keep entirely for you reading the news, checking emails and planning the day.
On a Friday evening I realised I had nothing, absolutely nothing, for my “holy” Saturday breakfast.
I was already in bed but I slipped out and prepared a dough, which I left to rise during the night, and went straight back to bed!
250 gr White Flour
A glass of Raisins
1 sachet of dry Yeast
10 gr Sugar
10 gr Salt
100 gr Milk
50 gr Water
1/2 glass of sliced Almonds
10-20 gr Olive oil
I put everything inside a mixer, prepared the dough, covered it (went to bed at midnight) and woke up in the morning ready to bake my breakfast.
I decided to make small rounded bread rolls and I put a few sunflower seeds inside each of them.
Using my hands, I gave the bread a rounded shape and I notched the top of each little bread roll with a knife, creating a cross (not too deep).
Breakfast was delicious! I really enjoyed my – breakfast – bread with jam and Nutella…
