Spelt and rye in breadmaker

Spelt and rye in breadmaker

Tasty and springy textured loaf. It's taken some experimentation to get a spelt and rye recipe to work in my Panasonic SD254, which doesn't cater for these flours. But the following recipe produces great loaves baked on the wholemeal rapid setting. I weigh the water for more accurate results: 1gm= 1ml

Flavoursome Sourdough, White with Malted Wheat and Light Rye Recipe

When COVID lock down started, I started making more and more bread, giving most to my neighbors in our hamlet. I was making several loaves every day, experimenting with different recipes, some from books and then as I got more adventurous and made my own up.

Vinschgauer Paarl – South Tyrolean aromatic rolls

There are a few recipes of Vinschger Paarl on the net, but all of them uses yeast, so I've been experimenting using only with sourdough culture and taste just like the one I ate in South Tyrol. My South Tyrolean husband approved it :)

Seeded rye bread - “Vollkornbrot”

Seeded rye bread - “Vollkornbrot”

This is a recipe for a German style seeded rye bread – known as “Vollkornbrot”. It’s not labour-intensive to make, but it does take a while and you certainly won’t have something fresh out of the oven in a couple of hours. It’s well worth the wait though - packed with seeds which give it a rich nutty taste and texture, it keeps well for several days after baking and the flavour is amazing!

German Pumpernickel

Light Rye or Malthouse Flour loaf for a Breadmaker

Light Rye or Malthouse Flour loaf for a Breadmaker

I usually use a mix of Malthouse, Strong White and Strong Wholemeal Flours to make this loaf, but due to an accidental substitution this one is Light Rye, instead of the Malthouse. It turned out better than I'd hoped and the crust is really crispy ...

Bolo do caco

Bolo do caco

I have been to Madeira several times and fell in love with this delicious bread. Bolo do caco is a traditional bread only produced on the islands of Madeira and is made of sweet potato, preferable the type they grow in Madeira. However you can take the normal sweet potato found in the supermarket. 'Bolo' means bread and 'caco' refers to the slab of stone that the bread is baked on. These breads are not baked in an oven but in a frying pan. They are typically served with butter and garlic.

Three Malts with a hint of rye sourdough

Three Malts with a hint of rye sourdough

Wondering what to do with a lot of active rye sourdough starter I experimented with using it in combination with Organic Three Malts & Sunflower Brown flour. The following recipe involves preparing a sourdough starter/production sourdough the day before baking the loaves. This recipe combines using natural yeast in the starter with using some active dried yeast when it comes to baking the loaves. This combination helps me produce a couple of loaves with a nice texture and flavour when there’s not enough time to work through all the usual processes needed to produce a ‘pure’ sourdough loaf.

Dark, delicious, easy-to-make rye sourdough. Ideal for working people; start it in the evening, eat it for breakfast. I use a mixer with dough hook, but I guess you could equally hand knead it. No, I haven'the forgotten the salt; I don't usually put any in my loaves.

A deliciously simple and quick loaf from your bread machine using sourdough starter: great when you haven't got time or patience to work out a loaf with your hands. A recipe inspired by the Eastern European style of sourdough bread. Ideally made with Shipton Mill Light Rye flour. Tested and tried on Panasonic breadmaker (SP - ZB2502) but should work well on any other quality bread maker.

Simple seeded loaf with rye

Simple seeded loaf with rye

This recipe is tried and tested using the breadmaker, but could no doubt be oven baked instead. The vitamin C powder allows the use of a higher proportion of rye (for extra colour and flavour) without preventing the loaf rising properly. If all goes to plan you get a lovely soft loaf, excellent rise and a very rustic flavour.
