Partying with bread

Recently I've been pampering (or maybe torturing? Hehehe...) Herr Scherrer with quite a bit of home-made bread for brekkie. Running out of interesting bread recipes to try, I recently purchased a new recipe book by Eric Treuille and Ursula Ferrigno which had all 168 pages focused solely on bread - there must be about 100 different bread recipes in it! Yeeaah!

The first bread recipe that caught my eye was one for "partybrot" or simply "party bread" in English. Partybrot is a German bread made by baking individual dinner rolls together in a round cake tin. The rounds are then sprinkled with sesame or poppy seeds. I love how cute it looks - little rounded blobs stuck together. Its really pretty to have on the table, especially when you have guests over for dinner.

The recipe in the book suggested sprinkling alternate blobs with sesame and poppy seeds so there'll be a nice colour contrast but too bad I only had poppy seeds at home.
