I am back, by popular demand, to give you the bread recipe I blogged about recently. There were a bunch of hollers on the GrowMama facebook page and a wee stack of messages asking for the recipe.
The Best Bread
- 1.5 l warm water
- 1 tbsp sugar, coconut sugar or honey
- 2 tbsp yeast
- 9 cups of flour (I use 6 cups of white flour and 3 wholemeal so the youngster will eat it)
- 1 tbsp salt
- 1 egg (or if vegan, I substitute with egg replacer or 2 tbsp ground linseeds)
Handful of seeds (however many you like, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, different linseeds, chia) I grind seeds for extra nutritional value if kiddoes are of the anti-seed variety.
Whisk the sweetener, water and yeast together and when activated and poufy chuck it all together and mix well.
Use a pastry brush to oil the tins, pour mixture in (it’s quite a wet mix) to 3/4 and put in a cold oven.
Heat oven to 190 degrees celsius.
Sometimes I set my timer for half an hour but mostly I check it once the delicious-freshly-baked-bread smell hits the house.
And, done! Now you can impress the pants of your friends too! You’re welcome. x
I make the basic mix for the kids loaves, then dose the rest with seeds for me. I like to play with different flours (I like to use rye and spelt) and you can tweak the wholemeal/white flour balance according to preferences.
