Cute bread rolls

On Saturday we set off for a return visit to the excellent Imbolc Fire Festival in Marsden, West Yorkshire.  Although it celebrates the pagan festival of Imbolc, its actually a civil event that's put on by the local council.  They arrange activities over a couple of weeks including a lantern making workshop, singing and more besides.  It's a great even to attend with a torchlight procession through the village that culminates in a fire circus, fireworks and an epic battle between Jack Frost and Jack o'the Green to ensure we've seen the last of winter!

This year we decided that we'd head over to Marsden early, grab a couple of geocaches and something to eat, and then do the lantern walk.  Unfortunately we didn't manage the caches, but we did find The New Inn and had a really excellent meal.  They had some really nice ideas that I hadn't seen before, one of which was a 'kiddicino'; a cappucino without the coffee for the kids!  My three year old was thrilled to be able to have one.  But the thing that I am blatantly stealing for my meal tonight is: bread rolls baked in a muffin tin!

Such a simple idea, but so cute!  One batch of fresh bread dough was enough for 12 of these delightful little bready morsels.  The perfect size for a dinner rolls with a beautiful domed top.  Who could resist?  I'm serving them tonight with a vegetarian moussaka which I will blog, if I remember to take a picture before we eat it - unlike last time!
