Il Bollo

Whose bread I eat: his song I sing.
German Proverb

 It’s hard to believe that we are at the end of our two year bread baking journey. We’ve made many loaves, some we liked, some we didn’t. We’ve shared happy times, and sad times. We’ve gained knowledge and distributed it. What a great gift. Thanks to Michelle at BigBlackDogs for her leadership and hard work at keeping us going. Here’s hoping we all continue forward with new projects, individually or as a group.


For this final assignment I made Il Bollo, a festive Italian bread, traditionally eaten to break the fast of Yom Kippur. Enriched with eggs and made with honey, lemon, vanilla, and anise, the aroma while it was baking was amazing and very comforting. Although it sounds like it would be a sweet bread, for me it really wasn’t. I liked this bread very much, and we are having it tonight with Eggplant Parmesan (with the final eggplants from the garden.) I’m sure there will be plenty left over to toast for breakfast.

Until our next baking adventure.
