Hi Kasia,

What do you mean by unusual? Someone will come along with an answer for you. I like to incorporate some olive oil and rosemary in mine...that's not so unusual though.

substitute tomato/vegetable juice for the water. the taste is not actually all that pronounced, but it's a nice color.

add pesto to the dough.

also, tandoori paste.

or mincemeat.

you can also approach a "sourdough" instantly by using unsweetened plain yogurt in place of the water.

other than that, i often add all kinds of whole grains, nuts, dried fruits, herbs, etc. none of which are particularly "unusual", though.
let me make sure that wine's ok before i use it.

This is a great bread:

I don't have enough posts to link to the you tube video, sorry

Whenever I make bread at home I use the "no-knead" method

(google Sulivan Street bakery no knead bread)

I also mix in whatever I like
White chocolate and candied pineapple
bacon and cheddar cheese
roasted garlic and rosemary
proscuitto and parmesan, etc......
