Savoury Raisin Bread

Savoury Raisin Bread

As you might have noticed I became crazy about baking recently. I am starting to create own recipes. Just like this savoury raisin bread with almonds. It is massive so I think we have to eat only bread for the next days. But I really like it. Usually raisin breads are of the soft and sweet type so this is a great alternative and it is very good with cheese.

I discovered this new type of cheese called “Gorgonzola al vino”. At the market they stuck a bottle of red wine headfirst into a big gorgonzola cheese for a couple of weeks, changing the position of the bottle every now and then until the cheese has fully absorbed the wine. It tastes fantastic!

I love the rustic look of the bread. It looks like one of those breads that knights would have in a green pouch and then cut it with a sword…
