Irish whole grain bread
  • 400 g /3½ cups whole-wheat flour
  • 50 g /1/2 cup white flour
  • 1 Tsp salt
  • 150 ml / ½ cup, plus 275ml /1½ cups warm water - 425ml// 2 cups total
  • 1 Tbsp homemade molasse (1 Tbsp brown sugar + 2 Tbsp water boil until becomes caramel)
  • 30 g fresh baker's yeast
  1. Mix flours and salt.
  2. Put 1 Tbsp of brown sugar in a small pan, together with 2 Tbsp of water. Turn on the gas and let the sugar melt becoming caramel. Turn off the gas. Add ½ cup of water (150 ml) and crumble in the yeast, stirring a bit. Let it rest for about 10 minutes.
  3. Add the yeast mixture plus the remaining water ( 1½ cups/ 275 ml) to the flour and stir until a batter is formed (sticky). Let it rest 10 minutes.
  4. Spray a loaf pan (25/27 cm) with cooking spray and add a sheet of parchment paper (it will help to take the bread out of the pan); pour the batter into it and level it with a spatula. Let it rest 20 to 30 minutes.
  5. Turn on the oven to 230°C/450°F.
  6. When the oven reaches the temperature, bake the bread for 20 minutes, then take it out of the pan, helping yourself with the parchment paper and bake it upside down, directly on the oven rack, at a lower temperature (200°C/400°F) for 15 minutes more.
  7. Let it cool on a rack.
  8. Buon appetito!
