Braided loaf with pesto

Yesterday I started interpreting at a two days´trial just to be sent home after two hours with a promise that I´ll be called again as soon as the trial has been rescheduled. So I was kind of disappointed, but also relieved (since I´m pathologically lazy these days) and I went straight home and back to bed where I watched the Brittish series “Happy Valley” for hours on end. After an afternoon walk with Sammy I felt like doing something else than lying around, so I baked a braided loaf with pesto. Very easy, quite pretty and oh so yummy! 😉


25-35 g fresh yeast

3 dl lukewarm water

3 spoons of good olive oil

4-500 g flour

1 tea spoon sugar

1 tea spoon salt

Melt the yeast in the lukewarm water and add the olive oil. Sift the flour in a bowl, add sugar and salt and work the yeast liquid into the mass. Knead the dough and leave it to rest for 30 min in a warm place.

Divide the dough into three and roll each piece like a hot dog. Spread some pesto on each piece, braid like it was hair and put it in the oven for 15-20 min. 😉 Yum!

Hope you feel like trying! 😉

xxx, Alina
