How to make rosemary bread

  1. To begin, make sure you leave the raisins to soak in a container full of water, and also put the rosemary in a saucepan with oil, turn on low heat and let the liquid flavor well for about 10-15 minutes. At the end, filter it and remove the needles of the aromatic herb (don't worry if a few pieces remain, it will not change the success of the typical recipe of Florence).
  2. Meanwhile, mix the flours with the dry yeast dissolved in warm water, the sugar and a teaspoon of salt.
  3. Gradually add the rosemary-flavored oil and finally the raisins, which you must have squeezed and drained well from the excess water.
  4. Continue to knead , balancing the doses with flour or water if needed, and once you have a rather homogeneous, moist but not sticky mixture, let it rise for about an hour and a half covered with a cloth.
  5. Once done, shape the sandwiches and place them on a lined baking sheet. Cook at a temperature of 200 ° C for about 25 minutes , remembering to brush them with egg yolk when they are almost ready.

Your raisin and rosemary bread is ready, enjoy your meal ! Alternatively you can try another traditional sweet bread, this time from the Aosta Valley, the mécoulin !


We recommend storing the Tuscan rosemary pan for a maximum of 1-2 days in a cool and dry place, away from sources of light or heat, preferably under a glass jar for sweets in order to maintain softness and fragrance. We do not recommend freezing in the freezer.
