Today, after a terrible storm, I went to see how all my aromatic plants were doing.
Well, they are all still beautiful, fresh and in excellent condition, and I felt like picking some for a bread for breakfast. I picked the mint because I like the smell, it gives me a fresh and clean feeling, and a little lemon thyme, I like the lemon flavour that it leaves on my fingers when I touch it, Then I returned to the kitchen and I set to work:
- 500 gr. “O” Flour
- 250 gr. Whole milk
- 30 gr. Fresh mint
- 15 gr. Lemon Thyme
- Zest of 1 lemon
- 50 gr. Butter
- 2 Dessert spoons honey
- 12 gr. Baking powder
- 5 gr. Sale
I chopped the herbs with lemon peel with a knife.
In the mixer I put the flour, milk and baking powder and started work it with the hook, then I added the honey, the butter, the herb mix and finally the salt. I mixed for about 10 minutes.
I let the dough rest for about 2 hours inside the closed oven (to avoid drafts) and then I worked it gently for a few minutes. I put it in the same rectangular pan used for plum cake, let it stand for 20 minutes and then I baked it for about 40 minutes total
It is excellent for breakfast cut into slices with jam or honey.
“Buona Colazione” to everyone.
