Semolina & Thyme Flower

Semolina & Thyme Flower

The semolina gives the bread a very soft texture and the thyme a bit of sweetness. It’s great for any occasion

Semolina & Thyme Flower

Makes 3 flowers

1 tsp active dried yeast

1 cup warm water

1⁄2 cup warm milk

2 tbsp honey

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup semolina flour

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp dried thyme

1⁄4 cup olive oil (plus extra for brushing)


Place yeast, water, milk and honey in a large bowl and leave for 15 minutes. The mixture should be frothy after this time – if not, the yeast is dead and you have to start over. Add 2 cups of the flour and mix well, then cover the bowl with plastic wrap and leave to rise for 1 hour.

Add the rest of the flour, semolina, salt, thyme and oil, and mix until you have a smooth dough. Cover again and allow the dough to rise for about 30 minutes, or until it has doubled in size. Preheat oven to 230°C. Divide the dough in 3 and shape each into a round loaf. Grease a baking tray with oil, place loaves on tray. Take a sharp knife and cut slits through the dough into the centre, creating a flower shape.

Brush each flower with extra oil and sprinkle with a little sea salt. Bake for about 18-20 minutes, or until golden. Cool on a wire rack before serving
