Honey Linseed bread
have been sick at home for the past few days and ran out of breakfast cereal...so i tot, why not make some bread...use up some ingredients and reduce the stuff to move...(in 4 days..woohoo..!!)
had some linseeds/flaxseeds so decided that will be the basis of the bread..one of the easiest recipes i found on the net was this one...which produced a subtly sweet and very delectable bread...i really like it... it's great just on its own...yum!
Honey Linseed Bread
Ingredients: 7 g dry yeast 2 tablespoons plus 1-1/4 cups warm water 3 tablespoons honey 1 tablespoon olive oil 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/3 cup linseed 1/3 cup pepitas 1/3 cup sesame seeds 3 cups plain flour
Directions: In large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in 2 tablespoons of warm water. Set this aside until bubbly, about five minutes. Mix in honey, oil, salt and the remaining 1-1/4 cups warm water. Add seeds and 2 cups of bread flour. Mix well. Stir in enough of remaining flour to make soft dough. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Knead for ten minutes, or until smooth and elastic. Shape into a loaf and place in a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan that has been coated with non-stick cooking spray. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour. Bake in 180 C oven for 40 to 50 minutes or until loaf is browned and sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack. Recipe makes one loaf or 12 to 16 slices.
The four of us started this blog together as a way to share our experiences and lessons in the kitchen. Now the blog has evolved into an random mix of recipes which we have tried and liked enough to want to share...some are dishes that remind us of home, some are things that we wouldn't usually have made in Singapore (muffins, cakes and most dishes requiring the oven) and others were just borne out of a need to use a certain ingredient!
Have a browse and have fun trying out the recipes!
