Offering a distinct touch, this Tuscan bread incorporates rosemary and raisin-infused olive oil, as well as some honey and sugar, into the yeasted dough. In an unlikely but memorable flavor pairing, the resulting rolls are crusty and lightly sweet. Serve them with peppered olive oil for dipping, or with an herbacous compound butter.

Ingredients

  • 30 grams yeast (brewer’s)
  • 500 grams all purpose flour
  • water
  • 50 grams extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 rosemary (twigs)
  • 150 grams raisins (Zibibbo, or Muscat)
  • 30 grams honey
  • 30 grams sugar
  • salt

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C.
  2. Prepare the dough by combining the flour and yeast together with some water, the dough should be compact and firm.
  3. Set it aside to rise.
  4. After approximately 1 hour, knead the dough again and set it aside to rise a second time for a few more hours.
  5. Saute a twig of rosemary with the olive oil, together with the raisins for approximately 10 minutes, remove the rosemary twig and set aside to cool.
  6. Next add the honey and the sugar to the dough with the rosemary and raisin oil.
  7. Add some fresh rosemary needles and a pinch of salt.
  8. Shape the dough into rolls and set them aside to rise for 20 minutes.

I was hesitant to use both honey and sugar because I was worried the bread would come out too sweet. It did not. In fact all the sweetness paired nicely with the pine-like, evergreen flavor of the rosemary herb.
