So we had a health expo at my church last week. It went really well and I was running the nutrition stand. I know I had promised a lot of people that I’d have this up more than a week ago. Life got in the way and I’m only getting to this now(finally!) I’m looking forward to you trying this bread and letting me know how it turns out!
This is the briefest post I’ve ever done, this is the new concise me! jk! Not a chance! :p
My mother taught me how to make this bread and her grandmother taught her and her matriarch before her taught her, so this is a very special (highly amended I’m sure) recipe. Feel free to add more bran or reduce it to your preference.
1 kg flour
3 cups bran
1 tsp salt
2 cups water
Mix dry ingredients then add enough water that flour can absorb. Knead
for 10 min(at least 5min if you’re feelingg lazy). Let it rise in a warm place till it doubles in size. Cut a cross in the middle to give it space to rise. Knock
the bread down.
Shape into desired shape on a buttered baking tray or
into a loaf tin and allow it to rise again if you like an airy loaf. Our family leaves this step out, it results in a hearty loaf that can be sliced thinly.
You can brush the loaf with water and sprinkle with flour before you bake it, if you like that look. Bake for 30 - 45min till it sounds hollow when you tap
