I was inspired by the need for spring time in this dismal season and wanted to create something flower-like. My little bread flower looks much less sophisticated like those breads of some of the other participants, but this doesn’t matter. It is a flower and it grew in my oven!

|1||tablespoon||Basil, fresh; chopped|
|1||teaspoon||Fresh pepper; crushed|
|1||teaspoon||Coriander seeds; ground|
|2||tablespoons||Dried roast onions|
Mix the yeast into the flour. Put the water, the flour and the salt into the bread machine. Use the program „yeast dough“ for kneading and letting it rise for about one hour. (Of course, you can do all this without a bread machine. )
Divide the dough into nine parts. Knead ever part again and form it to a palm-sized plate. Take half of every kind of filling and put it into the middle of the plates, respectively. Fold the edges to keep the filling in and knead again to distribute the spices evenly. On each ball put the other half of the spices and press them into the dough. Arrange them in a spring or pie form.
Cover with a clean towel and let rise again for at least half an hour. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Sprinkle some water on the bread and bake it for about 30 minutes.
I tried to cut the top of each ball first with a knife and then with scissors but unfortunately, as you can see, with no effect.
