Raw Liquorice Rye Bread

September 14, 2016

Raw Liquorice Rye Bread has a pleasantly bitter taste. The bitterness is obvious on the first day. Later the taste gets more balanced and rounded.

1 bread

4 dl (400 g) lukewarm water
1 dl (100 g) sourdough starter
3 tbsp molasses
0,25 tsp raw liquorice powder
1 tsp salt
2 dl (1 cup, US) salad seed mix (sunflower and pumpkin seeds, pine nuts, dried cranberries)
5 dl (300 g) rye flour 
5 dl (300 g) wheat flour

Blend lukewarm water, sourdough starter, molasses, raw liquorice powder and salt. Add salad seed mix, 5 dl of the rye flour and the wheat flour. Knead for 5 minutes.

Cover and let rise for 12–14 hours at room temperature.

Turn the dough out onto a generously floured surface and shape it into a loaf. Put the bread into an oiled bread tin.

Cover and let rise.

Preheat the oven to 250°C. Bake for 5 minutes, turn the temperature down to 200°C and cook for a further 40 minutes.

Slide from the tin and let cool on a wire rack. When cooled, wrap the bread and store at room temperature overnight. You don't have to hurry, the bread stores well and only gets better with time.

Spread cream cheese on a slice of bread and put cucumber slices on it. Enjoy!
