There is nothing better for breakfast than fresh, crunchy bread full of delicious healthy grains. Buying organic full grain bread in bakeries or the supermarket can be expensive. Visiting my parents some weeks ago my mother showed me how to prepare your own bread. And it’s really simple, fast and cheap. Plus: If you have the main ingredients at home on storage, you can bake your own fresh bread any time you want.

Ingredients

  • 500 g spelt flour (wholemeal)
  • 150 g grains, e.g. pumpkin seed, flax seed, sunflower seed, …
  • 500 ml water
  • yeast (either 1 yeast cube or 1 package of dried yeast)
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar

 

Method

  1. Mix the ingredients in the above order to a dough.
  2. Take a loaf pan covered with baking paper and put the dough in it.
  3. Put the pan into the cold oven on a rack on middle height and turn the oven to 200° Celsius.
  4. Bake the bread for 1 hour, then let it cool.

 

Tips & Tricks

By using different seeds or adding buttermilk you will get different flavours. If you put in buttermilk than reduce the water you are adding accordingly. You can also use spices like caraway to add a special taste. Be creative!
