This is my mum's go-to bread recipe, she doesn't have it written down, and it may have changed over time. But I remember eating numerous slices of this bread, still warm with lots of butter, when I was younger. She has always baked this kind of bread, and it is so easy, once you've done it a few times, and I promise you won't need the written-down recipe anymore...
Simple Homemade Bread
yields 2 big loafes, or 4 small ones
1/2 cube of fresh yeast ( you can substitute instant yeast: 14g)
1 tsp malt (or any sugar)
1 dl lukewarm water
1 - 2 Tbsp. spelt wholemeal flour
1 kg spelt wholemeal flour
4 tsp. herb salt
9 dl water
Prepare your baking pans and line them with parchment paper. I used 1 big loaf pan and 2 small ones. Pour the dough into the pans and now you could add nuts or oats if you want to. Preheat your oven to 200°C (392F) and let the dough rise a second time, until the oven is ready. Bake for 15 minutes then turn the temperature down to 180°C and bake for about 30 minutes. The baking time really depends on the size of your pan and how wet your dough is.
In my opinion, this recipe makes the yummiest bread ever. It is airy, with a nice crust and it tastes so good! You can either use savory or a sweet spread, this bread matches everything.
