Blog-Party 8: Brunch


This month Stephanie invites us to a virtual brunch.

For me brunch is synonymous with champagne breakfast. So I bring sparkling wine, which is no champagne, but Sekt.

And as it is right and proper for a breakfast, some rolls:

Poppy knots

Poppy knots 011 for brunch

The Sekt is called Red Riding Hood, guess why ;)

Put salt, sugar and saffron in large bowl. Pour the hot water over
the above, and stir until sugar is dissolved. Cool to lukewarm. Add
yeast, stir until dissolved. Add eggs and oil and mix well. Mix in
the flour to make a soft dough. Flour a board with flour. Knead
until smooth and elastic (about 5 minutes). Add a little more flour
if needed. Place in greased bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm place
for 1 1/2 hours. Punch down. Divide in 10 pieces about . Roll the
portions into ropes, just long enough to make a knot. Place whole on
greased cookie sheet. Cover, let rise 1 hour. Preheat oven to 175 °C/
350 °F. Brush knot evenly with egg-water mixture. Sprinkle with
seeds. Bake 25 minutes.

    Hi Ulrike!

    I’ve been waiting for someone to mention a champagne breakfast…you’re the first!

    Mmm…saffron? Poppy seeds? I *love* it!

    When I was in high school, we did a series of ‚plays‘ during German class. I’m pretty sure we did a Christmas Carol, and Snee Witchen, and one about Little Red Riding hood that translated something like „little red hot pants“!

    Even worse, there’s video proof out there somewhere…

    Thanks for coming to another Blog Party; look for the round-up Saturday night.
