Christmas Tree Bread



 Christmas Tree bread was the bread I choose to bake for this month’s theme. Kelly of gave the theme Pull apart breads , Monkey Bread , Bubble Bread - Sweet or Savory . As the Christmas season is nearby , I thought this Christmas tree bread will the apt for the theme too…….

Requirements :

3 ½ cup All purpose flour
2 ½ tbs of Instant dry yeast
1 tbs salt
4 tsp of sugar
1 tbs butter 
1 ½ cup Lukewarm water

For Garlic Coriander Topping :

2tbs of butter
1 whole garlic
½ cup of chopped coriander leaves
Salt to taste

Method :

In a bowl , mix together the flour , salt , sugar and yeast . To this mixture add in the lukewarm water and mix the dough.

Knead for 15 minutes or till the dough becomes soft and smooth.

Add in the butter and knead again for five minutes .

Cover the bowl and let the dough double in size.

Peel the skin of the garlic and chop into small pieces.

Melt the butter and add the chopped garlic and sauté till the nice aroma comes, take off flame and let it cool.

Knead the doubled dough once and divide the dough into small balls .

Roll each ball into round smooth balls and arrange in the baking tray in the row of seven , five , three, two and one towards top – resembles the top part of the Christmas tree.

Take two rolls and shape into a rope and twist , attach it to the tree shape – it will be the trunk of the tree.

Let these rest for half an hour and pour the sauteed garlic along with the melted butter all through the shaped bread .

Sprinkle the chopped coriander leaves on top.

Bake in the preheated oven @ 180*C for 30 minutes.

Let the bread cool on the rack and serve with spicy dip of your choice. 

Christmas Tree Bread is ready to serve.

Serve with spicy dip of your choice.
