Supereasy Bread Recipe

Just a quick post about bread. I think homemade bread is fantastic, but always thought it to be quite complicated to make and for it to require all sorts of equipment. Well, had I bothered googling how to make bread (and stopped making excuses) I would’ve been baking my own bread for a long time now. Or at least ever since I moved to the UK, as the bread selection in supermarkets here are nowhere near as varied as in Finland. Back home we have loads of different types of rye breads and multigrain breads in all different shapes and forms. Here people seem to stick to toast, toast and more toast.

Enough of the bread rant. Instead of moaning about the lousy bread selection in shops here I decided to give it a go myself. I found this really easy recipe online that I want to share with you – to prove how simple it is. (In case you’re not already an experienced bread baker. If so, feel free to send over some recipes!) I’ve made this three Sundays in a row now – it’s really nice to start the week with some freshly baked bread, and best of all, it only takes 10 minutes to prepare!

This is what you need:

Dry ingredients:

  • 500g of (organic) multigrain flour
  • 1 sachet of dried yeast
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 0,5-1 dl of seeds (poppy, sunflower, pumpkin,linseed, sesame etc. You can also use flour with seeds already in it.)

Wet ingredients:

  • 3 dl of warm water
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 2 tbsp of honey

This is what you do:

  1. Mix the dry ingredients together, mix the wet ingredients together – and then pour the wet mix into the dry one.
  2. Knead the dough for 5 minutes, until it no longer feels sticky.
  3. Put the dough in a 1,2 l oiled loaf tin and cover with a tea towel.
  4. Leave to rise for 1 h, until it springs back when you press it with your finger.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes in 200C, until it’s brown and risen.

It makes a breadlicious lunch:


Now that I’ve gotten over my fear of baking bread I definitely want to try other recipes too!

    I’m sure it was delicious! As we already talked, I bought a loaf pan/form (??), will start making breads, and will let you know if the results are worth mentioning. I’ve seen a lot of great recipes from coconut flour, so last week I bought a big bag and will asap start trying recipes. I saw many savory bread recipes with coconut flour.

      Yeah, I’ve seen coconut flour being used in bread recipes, but can’t help but think it’ll make the bread too sweet and coconutty…Let me know how your bread turns out!
