Here’s the link to the original recipe: Tales of a Kitchen Witch: Basic Bread Recipe
She’s got amazing recipes, so feel free to peruse through them!
Anyway, I wanted something heavier, denser, and higher in protein, so I modified the recipe. This is the new ingredients list, all other instructions are the same. The output is less though, due to the heaviness of the bread. You get 3 good sized loaves from grapefruit sized chunks, not four.
I do not claim copyright to the instructions that follow(though I modified them to what I did specifically), but the ingredients used are my own. I will SCREAM to use the corn meal, it is a LIFE saver when sliding into the oven.
- 3 c lukewarm water
- 1 1/2 tbsp granulated yeast
- 1 tbsp coarse kosher salt
- 3 1/2 c all purpose flour, measured carefully
- 1 1/2 c ground almond meal
- 1 1/2 c ground flax seed
- cornmeal for the pan and cutting board/transfer plate
- more flour for dusting
I did NOT let it cool completely before cutting, but it had cooled significantly…it was just too good to not have right away. The original recipe called for 1 1/2 tbsp of sea salt, but I scaled it back because the result was a tad on the salty side when you use kosher salt, you can experiment with sea salt if you prefer.
Here’s a few pictures of the resulting loaves:
