After watching the Great British Bake Off and the Master Class episode which featured Paul Hollywood’s breadsticks, and seeing as though they did not require as much effort as some other dough based bakes, I thought I would give his recipe a try.
However, (yes, always one of those with my baking!) I did not fancy a savoury breadstick, I wanted a sweet one and I had been sent some very fragrant mixed spice from Steenbergs. Cue my lightbulb moment as after having looked through my baking cupboard, I thought I would do some festive baking and make some Christmas Spiced Breadsticks. Having looked at Paul’s Olive Breadsticks recipe in The Great British Bake Off Everyday book, I used this as my starting point, changed some of the ingredients and I also amended the quanitities for I did not want 36 breadsticks .
