Wow them with Daisy Bread for Brunch

If you’re looking for a recipe to make for a springtime brunch, look no further. I’ve recently taken to making yeast breads because(in my humble opinion) not much beats homemade bread. It smells absolutely amazing while baking, tastes like I spent hours making it (which isn’t true), and I know every single ingredient that went into it. Plus, this recipe for Glazed Lemon Daisy Bread is as visually stunning as it is delicious!

Begin by making the bread dough and letting it rise in a warm place for 1 1/2 hours or until it doubles in size.

You’ll know it’s ready to go when you stick your finger into the dough and the indentation remains.

Punch the dough down to get rid of the extra air…

…and then roll out the dough into an 18-inch circle.

Spread with 1/4 cup of softened butter and sprinkle with ground cloves. This combination is a little unexpected, but lemon and cloves are a great flavor combo, especially in bread.

Now comes the fun part – making the “daisy” out of the bread. It sounds much more complicated than it actually is. Begin by placing a glass in the middle of the bread – this will be your “center point.”

Make 4 cuts from the outside of the circle to the glass.

Cut each quarter of dough into 5 equal wedges.

Twist every two wedges together, and pinch the edges tightly.

Now coil the twists toward the center.

Remove the glass, and twist the last two pieces of dough in toward the middle, making the center of the “daisy”.

The tricky part is moving the daisy bread to a greased baking sheet – I used a large spatula to move it, or you could always place it on parchment first (will try this next time!).

Let the bread rise for about another 45 minutes.

Bake at 350°F for 20-30 minutes, or until golden brown.

Combine all the glaze ingredients in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until the mixture comes to a full boil. Boil for about three minutes, and then pour the warm glaze over the bread. The lemon juice gives just the right amount of tartness to the glaze that complements the lemon in the bread dough.

Nothing says spring quite like lemon and freshly baked bread. Give Glazed Lemon Daisy Bread a try!
