The weekend is approaching and the Friday feeling is starting to creep in. Maybe you're thinking about a weekend breakfast or a trip to the woods with your picnic basket. You'll want something tasty, simple and quick to go with it, so settle down with a steaming cup of coffee and a cheese roll.
This recipe is inspired by my grandmother Anna-Greta who always brings this bread to parties - they are eaten in no time! Have now tweaked this tried and tested recipe with our own twist - dried sugar kelp. Take the opportunity to make a double batch and freeze!
Keep in mind that sugar kelp is salty in itself and replaces regular salt to some extent.
Oven temp: 225 degrees
- 5 dl finger-warm water
- 1 dl milk of your choice
- 25 g yeast
- 0,5-1 tsp salt
- 1-1.5 tbsp seaweed powder (if you have flakes, just grind it finely).
- 1 tbsp honey
- Approximately 11-13 dl of wheat flour.
- flour for baking
- seaweed salt to sprinkle on top.
- Measure out the water and milk and heat in a saucepan to finger-warm temperature.
- Crumble the yeast into a bowl and add the salt and honey. Over this pour some of your water and milk mixture. Stir with a wooden fork, then pour in the rest of the mixture and stir in the flour as well.
- Quickly work the loose dough together. Sprinkle a couple of tablespoons of wheat flour over the dough and cover the bowl with a baking cloth and leave the dough to rise for 1 hour. Preferably where it is a little warmer, like by the side of the stove, it will rise better.
- While the dough is rising, heat the oven to 225 degrees.
- Flatten the baking tray, piling up the dough. DO NOT knead, but sprinkle flour on top of the dough and gently flatten with your fingers if necessary.
- When you have flattened the dough to a thickness of 1-2 cm, quickly cut the dough into the right size pieces using a dough scraper. The shape will be a bit of a hullabaloo, just make sure the pieces are roughly the same size.
- As you cut out your pieces, lift them over to the plates and dab on some water with a brush and sprinkle on seaweed salt.
- You can start baking as soon as the loaves are on the baking tray. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 10 minutes until golden brown.
- Place them on a wire rack and leave to cool.
- Ready & waiting to serve!
