Anyway back to business and high time for the lovely Bread Baking Buddies that baked along with the Babes this month, the Russian chrysanthemum bread. There are only two buddies this month, but really worth taking a look at, they both did an excelent job.
Even ready on the same day as we posted we had the lovely bread Carola "Sweet and that's is". This has such a fantastic look, like the one I saw on a Russian blog, where all the petals are closed on top. The look I aimed for, but I couldn't resist to put more stuffing in.
Kelly from "My messy kitchen" made me realise that if you put a lot of stuffing in and leave the petals exposing the filling is a wonderful option too. Especially because she has a red filling (cranberry, pecans and a little sugar), that made the bread resemble a flower even more. Great job Kelly.
These are our buddies for this month. Thanks for baking with us Carola and Kelly. Both are invited with all others who love to bake to come join us as a Bread Baking Buddy next time. The 16th of December the new recipe will be reveiled! See you then.
