Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I create and share my favourite foods that just so happen to be vegan. Enjoy!

The Easiest Bread You Will Ever Make

Carbs are my absolute favourite thing in the world. I love pasta, hearty sandwiches, toast, baguettes, noodles...if it is a carb, I will devour it! I also enjoy making carbs. When I am motivated and have the time I like to make fresh pasta for dinner parties, but most weeks I make this bread. It is honestly so easy to make, and quick too! I can get home after 5 p.m. and have fresh bread by  7 p.m.

The recipe is super versatile as well! I have swapped out some of the flour for rye and buckwheat flour; I have changed the seeds and other tasty bits to whatever I have on hand, and it always turns out so well. The only thing that seems to be finicky with this recipe: the amount of water needs to be precise and you want a nice even temperature for the rise time.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp yeast
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 300mL lukewarm water
  • 4 cups wholemeal flour
  • 2 cups white flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup hulled buckwheat kernels
  • 1/2 cup mixed grains or seeds (flax, quinoa, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, etc.)
  • 600mL lukewarm water

Directions:

  1. Combine the yeast, sugar, and water in a bowl and let sit until it is foamy.
  2. Combine all of the dry ingredients in a larger mixing bowl.
  3. Add the yeast mixture and the other 600mL of water to the dry ingredients and mix well.
  4. Pour the mixture into a large bread pan or split into two small loaf tins.
  5. Let rise in a warm spot for 40 minutes. I put mine on top of the fire and it works perfectly!
  6. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius and bake for 40 minutes.
  7. Let the loaf cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.
