The bookkeeping office was closed today, so instead I spent the day cleaning, organizing my papers and baking bread. I can’t eat store bought bread, well I can eat it – but I honestly can’t stand the taste. If you ever thought baking bread is hard, expensive or takes a lot of time, I can happily inform you that you are very wrong. Try this:

5 dl water 37C
50g yeast
1 ss oil + 2 ts salt
6 dl rye flour + 8 dl flour

Add the yeast to the water, dissolve by stirring. Add oil and salt.
Add flour until the dough is fairly firm and lets go of the bowl.
Knead the dough for 5 minutes.
Let the dough raise in warm area in the bowl covered, by a kitchen towel, for 30 min. (It should double in size)
Knead the dough again for another 5 min, divide in two to form two oval shaped breads. Sprinkle some flour over and let the breads raise for another 30 min.
Bake in oven at 250 C for 20 min on the bottom shelf. Core temperature should be over 98C.

Cool on a wire rack before slicing the bread.

The cost of one bread is aprox 3 SEK, compared to 26 SEK at the store. For those of you who use the electricity-bill-argument, the cost of running the oven at 250 C for 30 in is 1-2 SEK.
