I'm a lover of bread but I don't eat bread. My tummy is so sentistve to grains that I tend to just stay away and my body thanks me for it. But ocassionally making nutitious bread that I can digest, well, is just what a gal needs in her life! My kids love this bread, toasted and slathered with yellow butter and jam.
My friend shared this recipe with me and I'm so glad she did, because I have been making two loaves at a time, and my family loves the aroma of fresh bread in our home. It smells like a home! She found the recipe from this cookbook.
My friend is a bit of a non-conformist (me too) and she plays around with this recipe, adding more sourdough starter than the recipe calls for, adding raisins and nuts in one of the loaves, and even adding a different flour than the Einkorn flour the recipe calls for. I didn't have Einkorn flour when I first made this recipe and it turned out beautifully. I had used an organic bread flour from Azure Standard. It's okay to use what you have!
what's home without the aroma of bread?
If you are gluten intolerant or have a hard time digesting most breads like myself, this is a great option to have. Consider this as a fermented bread, like with all ferments, our guts love a good way of digesting those grains. And our bodies are thankful too!
