Carrot and Sunflower Breakfast Bread..

Nothing is better than the smell of fresh bread on a Saturday morning, and this has always been Petter's speciality (my lovely hubby). So, I wanted to come up with a recipe that he will like as much as his own recipe and today SUCESS!!!

here is what I did:

50 g fresh yeast
50 g butter
2,5 dl milk
2,5 dl water
1 tbsp salt
1 pinch bread spices (krm in Swedish and bread spices are a mix of ground cumin, anise and fennel seeds)
1 pinch of cumin
1 tsp honey
2 medium big grated carrots
2 dl sunflower seeds
2 dl oatmeal
2 dl rye flour
2 dl graham flour
3 dl wholemeal flour (lantbrödsmjöl)
4 dl wheat flour especially for baking bread (vetemjöl special)
1 dl flour for working the bread later on

First you crumble your yeast in a big baking bowl then melt the butter in a casserole and add the milk and water. The mix has to be finger warm (37 degrees Celsius) or the dough won't rise. Then add teh liquids to the yeast and mix till the yeast is dissolved. Add the spices and honey (if your carrots are not sweet make it 1 tbsp honey) and mix well, then add the grated carrots.
Finally add the different sorts of flours and kneed for a few minutes till you get an even dough (if it's too sticky add a bit more wheat flour), then cover with a towel and place somewhere warm for 45 minutes to rise ( I put it in our sauna!!)

Take the bread out on a floured surface and knead for several minutes, then form into a long loaf that you cut in 16 pieces that you form into buns and place on buttered oven form for 15 minutes to rise without covering. Heat the oven to 225 degrees Celsius, then place the buns for 12 minutes to bake.

when out place under a towel on a grate to cool off then pack into freezer bags and freeze. Take out as many as needed in the morning to heat in the microwave for 1 minute max and you have fresh bread every morning :)
