After buying some really nice bread at a nearby bakery, at the to my mind quite expensive price of 42 kroner for a loaf (about £4.50), I decided to bake some myself. I found a recipe on the net, and followed it pretty closely, this being the first try.
- 12.5 grams cake yeast – or I am guessing, a quarter of a packet
- 300 ml cold water or milk
- teaspoon of salt
- teaspoon of sugar
- 350-400 grams high-protein flour
- 100 grams wholemeal flour
Step one, basically mix it together and knead. Okay, perhaps dissolve the yeast first in the water, and add the flour little by little. But get it mixed together, and knead well. I kneaded until my wrist started hurting, and then a bit more since it didn’t feel quite right yet. This isn’t no-knead bread.
