Chrysanthemum Bread


For the final day of Blogging Marathon #65 under the theme pull apart bread is chrysthamum bread.I wanted to share some herb and garlic bread for this day.As I ran out of the herbs I made this bread.
There are so many various stuffing can be used for this bread according to personal preference.But I wanted to keep it simple and made a plain bread.
Shaping the bread is a bit time consuming but its worth it to give a try.Also here I used some whole wheat flour along with the plain flour.Lets move on to the recipe.....
