kaisersemmel -

Kaisersemmel, also called Kaiserweck (en) or Kaiserbrötchen, is a round and hard loaf originating in Austria. This bread is made from white flour, yeast, malt, air and salt.

The other part usually has a symmetrical pattern consisting of five segments separated by a curved piece of blade. Kaisersemmel is a traditional Austrian food that is formally approved by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture.

This bread is commonly called semmel (derived from Latin: simila, meaning "white flour") in Austria and Bavaria. In northern Germany this bread is similar to Brötchen.

Kaisersemmel has existed since 1760. It is said that this bread was named Kaisersemmel in honor of Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria (1830-1916).
