I love to bake bread. It takes a lot of time and effort to become a true professional, but the beautiful thing about bread is that even if you’re a beginner and your bread rolls are uneven and ugly, it still tastes amazing.
I don’t mind if it takes time to bake bread, and most recipes require a couple of hours. However, sometimes I want bread ready faster than that. This recipe is my new favorite, and gives you fresh bread in about one hour. In other words – perfect when you are short on time or simply forgot to get that dough ready.
50 g fresh yeast
2 tbsp butter or margarine
5 dl | 500 ml water
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp caster sugar
5 dl | 300 g spelt flour
10 dl | 600 g all-purpose flour
- Melt the margarine and add water. Let cool or reheat until the water has a temperature of 37°C.
- In a baking bowl, crumble the yeast.
- Add the water and stir until the yeast has completely dissolved.
- Add the remaining ingredients and stir together.
- Work the dough until smooth.
- Divide the dough into 30 pieces and shape each piece into a small ball.
- Place on a baking sheet (covered with parchment).
- Let rise for 45 minutes.
- Brush with water, milk of your choice or egg.
- Bake in the middle of the oven for about 10 minutes, or until golden.
- Let cool and enjoy! These freezes well so I recommend storing any leftovers in the freezer.
