    Scandigirl's Note:

    This is my own creation of a Danish French bread called Franskbrod. I missed it so much here in Canada, that I got down to business and experimented enough to have it down right... Enjoy with homemade peach jam, or some Danish Havarti. Velbekomme!

      An excellent bread recipe! after rolling the dough out I sprinkled it with the poppy seeds, and cut it up cinnamon roll style, for some very pretty rolls! they only took 20 minutes in the oven .. thanks

      I'm very pleased with the way this recipe came out. I did not make 2 loaves because my oven is small. Rather, I made one fairly large round loaf (800 g), 8 finger rolls of about 55 g each, and one longer loaf (445 g). The dough rose beautifully in the oven to make lovely breads. They are soft and fine-grained inside, and taste wonderful. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.
