ivana-style whole wheat bread

Our friends have been visiting their family in Slovakia for the past 3 months.  How we have missed them!  Here is a version of the sandwich bread, Ivana-style.  Ivana sent me the beautiful photos below this weekend of her visit in Slovakia and Prague.  🙂  Enjoy!

-in mixer combine:

  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 1/2 c almond milk warmed
  • 1 1/2 c water warmed
  • 4 1/2 tbs yeast

-(allow yeast to dissolve a few minutes)
-add:

  • 3 cups wheat berries (ground)
  • 1/4 c honey

-beat for 2 minutes
-add:

  • 3 c kamut berries
  • 1/2 c spelt berries
  • 1/2 c flax seeds (all ground together)
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp carraway seeds {I’m not sure but I may have put in cumin by mistake…:)}
  • 4 tsp raw pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tsp flax seeds

-allow dough to rest 10 minutes
-knead for 6-10 minutes or until dough is elastic and smooth
-cut in half and place in coconut oil greased pans
-cover and let rise 30-35 minutes or until dough has just passed the tops of the pan
-bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes
-remove from pans and allow to cool on rack

Trying to decided which I like best.  I do love a good herby-seedy loaf!

What is your favorite kind of bread? xoxo ~katrina
